Use of PRECIS ratings in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) health care systems research collaboratory.
This analysis applied the PRECIS-2 pragmatic trial criteria to five NIH Collaboratory pragmatic trials to better understand 1) the pragmatic aspects of the design and implementation of treatments delivered in real world settings and 2) the usability of the PRECIS-2 criteria for assessing pragmatic features across studies and across time. All five trials were rated to be more pragmatic than explanatory.
