Foster professor of health policy and management, is one of 19 members appointed to the Board of Governors for the Government Accountability Office’s new Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 established PCORI as a non-profit organization to assist patients, clinicians, purchasers, and policy-makers in making informed health decisions by carrying out research projects that provide quality, relevant evidence on how diseases, disorders, and other health conditions can effectively and appropriately be prevented, diagnosed, treated, monitored, and managed. Members of the Board will be appointed for a six-year term and may be reappointed for one subsequent six-year term. [SOURCE: GAO press release]
