The TARGET Trial Advisory Board met with the Steering Committee for the first time on September 30, 2015 in Pittsburgh, PA. This full-day meeting included a discussion by patient, provider, payer, and policy stakeholder groups. Representatives from Harvard Medical School Center for Primary Care, American Physical Therapy Association, Optum Health, Altarum Institute, UPMC Health Plan, and PCORI were in attendance.
The Advisory Board will meet again in March 2016 to discuss progress made during the first 9 months of TARGET. The board will then meet annually during all five years of the project.
