New toolkit guides hospitals integrating electronic patient-reported outcomes



A new toolkit is available to help health systems integrate electronic patient-reported outcomes into care delivery.

The toolkit provides guidelines and tools to health systems looking to integrate electronic patient-reported outcomes into clinical care, as opposed to patient-reported outcomes collected through traditional pen-and-paper methods. The guidelines are organized around three core topic areas: governance, integration and reporting.

The toolkit was developed by a team from Seattle-based University of Washington using a grant awarded by the HHS’ Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
