SEMINAR: Challenges and Successes in the Implementation of PROMs at a Musculoskeletal Specialty Hospital

Leaders at the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) in New York, have developed a framework to enhance and expand the use of patient- reported outcome measures (PROMs). Over the past 3 years, they have built 28 different PROMs into the electronic health record system and developed clinical decision-making tools. This seminar will discuss industry-wide developments and limitations and outline how HSS has incorporated solutions to support patient engagement, clinical care, health care research, and quality-driven activities.
