IDSA Members Named to PCORI Panel

Two members of IDSA’s Diagnostic Task Force, Robert A. Bonomo, MD, and Ann MacIntyre, MD, have been elected to the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute’s (PCORI) Advisory Panel for the Assessment, Prevention, and Treatment of Disease. PCORI is an independent organization that examines the relative health outcomes, effectiveness, and appropriateness of various medical treatments, focusing on including a patient voice during the process. The Advisory Panel for the Assessment, Prevention, and Treatment of Disease will help to identify critical research questions to prioritize funding for PCORI’s comparative effectiveness research.  Infectious disease has long been under-represented in PCORI research funding, and the perspectives of these two members will raise awareness of the many ID issues that impact patients.

Over 300 applications were submitted for the four primary and four alternate slots on the panel, and Drs. Bonomo and MacIntyre were the only two physicians selected. Dr. Bonomo, elected to a primary spot on the panel, is chief of the medical service at the Louis Stokes Cleveland Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center, and is professor of medicine, pharmacology, molecular biology, and microbiology at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) School of Medicine.  Dr. MacIntyre has been selected as an alternate to the panel, and is a private practice physician, clinical associate professor in the Department of Internal Medicine at Nova Southeastern University, and the director of the Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program at Palmetto General Hospital in Florida.
