October 2022- Design and Implementation of Individualized, PRO-based, Decision Reports with Predictive Analytics

Osteoarthritis affects almost two-thirds of aging adults. When knee or hip osteoarthritis pain limits daily activities, patients and clinicians must decide if joint arthroplasty surgery is indicated. This PCORI-funded research designed a patient-clinician decision report that includes predicted patient outcomes based on national data. The report was implemented and evaluated among 5800 patients at 12 sites.

Patricia Franklin, MD MBA MPH advances learning healthcare systems through designing and implementing novel methods to translate knowledge to improve patient care and population health outcomes. Her recent research designs and evaluates methods to collect, analyze, and report patient-reported and clinical data to guide personalized treatment decisions among aging adults with knee and hip osteoarthritis. Dr. Franklin has held diverse leadership roles including medical director of health system quality, co-director of training programs for junior faculty and post-doctoral trainees, and principal investigator of large federally funded research studies.
