Value-Based Healthcare Delivery and The Role of Patient-Reported Outcome Measurement (PROMs): A Journey From Health Economics to Outcomes and Back Again

Dr. Cizik will use her 20-year research trajectory and her background in PROMs and health economics and outcomes Research to help us understand how PROMs can be used to deliver and measure value-based surgical care.

Dr. Amy Cizik is a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Orthopedics at the University of Utah and Adjunct Assistant Professor in Population Health Sciences. Specializing in value-based healthcare with a background in health economics and outcomes research, her primary research interest is to help surgeons and patients use patient-reported outcome measures to fully inform value-based, patient-centered, preference-based surgical treatment decisions to best preserve health care resources utilization for society. By incorporating patient reported outcome measures (PROMs), methods of risk prediction, and utility preference elicitation, into EMR-based decision supports Dr. Cizik hopes to improve outcomes, value, and safety in surgical care.
