Implementation of Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement in Routine Clinical Practice for Heart Failure Patients in PCORnet®

PI(s): Justin M. Bachmann, MD, MPH, FACC, Vanderbilt University, VUMC 

Project Summary: The systematic collection of patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) in routine clinical practice has profound potential to accelerate patient-centered care and research, allowing providers and health care systems to focus in real time on outcomes that matter most to patients. This project focuses on studying the implementation of PROMs in routine clinical care for patients with heart failure and conducting cross-institutional analyses of PROM data. We hope to determine the feasibility and sustainability of measuring PROMs at the point of service and integrating these data into the electronic health record as well as the PCORnet® Clinical Data Model (CDM) Patient Reported Outcome Common Measures (PRO_CM) table.

Study Design: Systematic collection of PROMs in clinical care and analysis of PROM data using the PCORnet CDM PRO_CM table.
