PCORI seeks to fund rigorous high-quality studies that address the following research question: What is the comparative effectiveness of multicomponent, multilevel interventions to improve maternal outcomes for individuals from populations highly impacted by maternal health disparities? Proposed CER studies may focus on pre-and/or postnatal care and should include at least one of each of the following types of interventions:

  • Health systems strategies to address disparities in maternal health outcomes (e.g., data accountability measures; bias awareness training; trauma-informed care; team-based care; community-informed models of care; telehealth; standardized protocols for monitoring/treatment of hypertension, substance use, depression, and diabetes)
  • Strategies to address social determinants of health (e.g., active assistance with resources; medically tailored meals; vouchers for food, housing, or other needs; medical-legal partnerships; integrated social services in clinical settings)
