The Patient Centered Outcomes Research for Employees (PCORE) project is a proactive public health model for developing and promoting employee wellness using an employee-centered approach.
Led by Dr. Daniel Pinto and Dr. Abiola Keller, PCORE provides an opportunity for employees with chronic conditions to meaningfully contribute to decisions regarding workplace health and wellness.
The project brings together employees, health and wellness representatives, researchers and clinicians, and NWSP leadership to share perspectives and explore research as a tool to address health and wellness challenges in employee populations. It works by helping partnering businesses explore how to increase the employee voice in workplace health offerings and by developing potential solutions that can be tested for comparative effectiveness.
PCORE began two years before the global COVID-19 pandemic hit our community in early 2020, but, like most everything in 2020, was quickly adapted to respond to the needs of employees and employers in the Near West Side.
