Optimizing the Value of Patient-Reported Outcome Measures in Improving Care Delivery through Health Information Technology


This research worked with orthopedic surgeons and their patients on patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) and found that patients prefer simple tools around individualized goals; that text reminders improve response rates for PROMs; and that, while surgeons perceive that aggregate PROMs reports have value, provision of performance comparison reports did not improve outcomes over a 5-month period.
