CHIEF OFFICER FOR ENGAGEMENT Client Overview Our client, Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) is seeking a Chief Officer for Engagement (COE) to provide leadership to the Patient Engagement and Stakeholder Engagement teams. This is a new position reporting to PCORI’s Executive Director and is one of three “C-level” executives on PCORI’s leadership team that also includes the Chief Operating Officer (COO) and the Chief Scientific Officer (CSO). PCORI has retained Sterling Martin Associates to help with this important search. About PCORI The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) was established under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA). The purpose of the Institute is to assist patients, clinicians, purchasers, and policy-makers in making informed health decisions by advancing the quality and relevance of evidence concerning the manner in which diseases, disorders, and other health conditions can effectively and appropriately be prevented, diagnosed, treated, monitored, and managed through research and evidence synthesis that considers variations in patient sub-populations, and the dissemination of research findings, with respect to relative health outcomes, clinical effectiveness, and appropriateness of medical treatments and services. Key Responsibilities Building upon PCORI’s extensive engagement efforts to date, lead continued development of the vision and strategy for PCORI”s engagement with the broad range of stakeholders, in collaboration with Executive Team. Work closely with the PCORI Board of Governors and its Communications, Outreach, and Engagement Committee (COEC) to maximize the potential for effective, ongoing relationships with stakeholder communities. Lead, mentor, and support PCORI’s engagement team in implementing PCORI’s engagement program. Represent PCORI to the highest levels of key stakeholder organizations, and bring these organizations together to participate in planning and conducting patient-centered outcomes research. Serve as a principal spokesperson for PCORI to a broad range of stakeholder audiences. Bring stakeholders together, provide vision, and inspire them to collaborate in the name of patients and their need for trusted information. Patient and Stakeholder Engagement The creation of this position reflects PCORI’s growing appreciation of the central role of its engagement with multiple stakeholders in building a uniquely responsive and effective patient- centered program of research. The successful candidate will oversee all of PCORI’s engagement activities through two direct reports; the Director, Patient Engagement and the Director, Stakeholder Engagement along with their talented teams of at least eight professionals. The COE will have overall responsibility for strategic planning and implementation of a program that builds ongoing, trusting relationships between PCORI and all stakeholders in the national health care enterprise, including patients and consumers, clinicians, hospitals and health care delivery systems, health plans, employers, the research community, the life sciences industry, and federal, state, and local government, as well as with organizations that represent or advocate for these stakeholders. In this work, he/she will have the close collaboration and support of PCORI’s Executive Director, of other Executive level staff, and of PCORI’s Board of Governors and its Communications, Outreach, and Engagement Committee. The successful candidate will ensure that PCORI’s engagement programs and strategies are widely known and understood at the highest levels of all stakeholder organizations. The Chief Officer for Engagement will also ensure that that PCORI’s engagement team is closely integrated with PCORI’s scientific staff and with PCORI’s communications team through close coordination with the CSO and COO. Engagement is an essential aspect of PCORI’s work, extending well beyond the simple notion of securing input from a variety of stakeholders. PCORI aims to involve patients, caregivers, clinicians, other stakeholders, and the organizations representing these stakeholders in a partnership of shared accountability for PCORI’s research priorities and research agenda. Engagement activities bring stakeholders together with researchers, both within and outside PCORI, in the solicitation and identification of critical research questions; in a prioritization process that identifies those research studies most likely to affect practice and improve patient- centered outcomes; in ongoing evaluation of PCORI’s research portfolio and its findings; in the conduct of patient-centered outcomes research; and in planning for effective dissemination of PCORI research products. We believe that this participatory approach involving all stakeholders, with patients and their interests at the center, offers the best opportunity to conduct meaningful research, accelerate its dissemination, and drive demand for PCORI’s work products.
