The IECRN (Inventory & Evaluation of Clinical Research Networks) Award Recipients

The IECRN (Inventory & Evaluation of Clinical Research Networks) project, a component of the NIH Roadmap, selected three of our primary care PBRNs, including PROS, for  "best practices" for demonstrated success in operating efficiently, expanding their research scope, and translating findings.

Those networks are:

  • Pediatric Research in Office Settings (PROS), Director Mort Wasserman
  • Oklahoma Physicians Research/Resource Network (OKPRN ), Director Jim Mold
  • Indiana University Research Network (ResNet), Director Bill Tierney

They participated in an in-depth assessment of how their PBRN had been able to achieve successes in critical areas of clinical research. The results of this assessment were published in 2006.
