PERC Partnerships

Our center values the relationships that we build with our patients, caregivers, community organizations and academic centers across the nation. By engaging a broad group of stakeholders we strive to understand the healthcare questions that matter across all groups and look for opportunities to collaborate on health system projects, research development and award management.

PERC has developed this framework through a $5 million grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) to develop a world-class Center for Patient-Centered Outcomes Research. 


As part of our outreach to community, listed below is a list of our ongoing collaboration.
