In 2016, AHRQ launched a program of grants and contracts aimed at helping health care providers move patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) evidence into practice through clinical decision support (CDS). AHRQ advances the science of CDS by supporting implementers, clinicians, and technology vendors in developing CDS tools that are shareable, standards-based, publicly-available, and patient-centered. These components are detailed below.

Beyond these efforts, AHRQ continues to fund grants focused on advancing evidence into practice.  Grant funding is available for digital healthcare research and other priority areas, including clinical decision support.
