Patient-Reported Outcomes

While patient-reported outcomes (PROs) offer a complementary perspective to that of clinician assessments, and may provide greater insights into health status, function, symptom burden, adherence, health behaviors, and quality of life, many electronic health record systems do not collect PRO data in structured or standardized ways that can allow for their use. AHRQ currently funds projects for how to collect and use PROs using health IT, as well as to scale and spread existing health IT models that currently incorporate PROs.
