Practice Transformation: Using Patient Reported Outcomes and Measures in Learning Health Care Systems


In an effort to improve quality and reduce costs, policy makers and providers are focusing on developing and assessing the quality of integrated services (clinical, behavioral, and social) delivered to patients with multiple chronic conditions.     Providers mostly rely on process or disease specific measures to manage patients and to assess the quality of their care. Most important for this population are patient-reported outcomes measures (PROMs), which have the potential to provide a broader picture of patient functioning, incorporate the patient voice into care planning and delivery, and can serve as management tool for assessing accountability and improvement.  Several measures already exist and have been validated.  Yet, there is a lack of knowledge on how to integrate the use of PROMs into clinical workflows and how to use them to measure the quality of care that is delivered. Working with a leadership group of experts, the project will seek to further define and examine the conditions necessary for successful implementation of PROMs in care delivery workflows and in using PROMs to support performance measurement.
