"Patient outcomes in multimorbidity - PROMS harmonised across diagnoses to guide us"
Presented by Martin Ingvar, MD, PhD
Director, Osher Center for Integrative Medicine, Karolinska Intitutet, Sweden
Abstract: The use of PROMS to allow the patients' voice to be heard when assessing quality and outcomes offers a potent tool in healthcare improvement. We have developed standard sets of measures to assess outcomes that matter to patients covering more than 50% of the disease burden. Recently we harmonised the terminology across all diagnoses in order to allow efficient assessment of outcomes also in patients with multiple diagnoses (ICHOM.org). We are in the process of an international roll-out and provide a mechanism for international benchmarking of provider results based on these measurement schedules. The systematic use of PROMS is an important asset in health care development.
