Contribute Your Insights on Collecting and Using Patient-Reported Outcomes in Practice

The EDM Forum is currently soliciting submissions to the PROactive toolkit to promote emerging best practices for implementing patient-reported outcomes (PRO) in health care settings. PRO measures, implementation guides, governance modules, analytic plans or code for analyzing PRO data, and other tools will be accepted to promote the dissemination of useful and generalizable strategies to assist clinicians, administrators and researchers who are interested in including PROs in their work.

The toolkit will be a living resource and we invite you to submit materials you feel will be helpful to accelerate appropriate uses of PROs in practice.
