Patient-reported outcomes

Patient-reported outcome measures collect and measure feedback about aspects of a patient’s own health and wellbeing.

Te Tāhū Hauora conducts surveys of patient-reported outcomes to enable health care providers and policy makers to better understand opportunities for continuous improvement in the delivery of health and wellbeing outcomes. Self-reported outcomes survey data or patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) reflect patients’ views on how care has improved health (or not) or prevented further deterioration (or not). PROMs contribute to how we measure health system effectiveness, quality improvement, patient-centredness, value and equity. 

Here is a link to some additional information on PROMs in the code of expectations implementation guide. Te Tāhū Hauora is also exploring trauma patients’ self-reported outcomes
