Description of Project**:Funded by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), the patient-centered SCAlable National Network for Effectiveness Research (pSCANNER) is one of 13 clinical data research networks.  pSCANNER is a stakeholder-governed federated network whose mission is to make health data more accessible and usable for the generation of scientific evidence that patients, clinicians, and other stakeholders together use to make more informed health decisions.  pSCANNER overcomes traditional obstacles to data sharing and analysis by using a scalable, distributed network infrastructure with novel privacy-preserving methodologies.  pSCANNER is a network of 14 health systems and community clinics covering over 37 million patients.  Each pSCANNER partner site can opt to or decline participation in a proposed study based on how the study goals align with the site's overall mission, patient population, and operational feasibility.
