Patient-reported outcome measures (PROM) are an important factor in assessing disease burden and identifying the adverse events of treatments.
With healthcare moving towards the value-based model, more practitioners are using patient-reported outcomes (PROs) to document their patients’ quality of life. Based on a survey by Health Catalyst only one in five hospitals in the U.S. use PROs consistently. Among the respondents who used patient reported outcomes to some extent were those engaged in chronic disease management, surgical interventions, post-surgical patient tracking, mental healthcare, and cancer management.

However, the survey also indicated that nearly three-quarters of respondents had plans to begin using PROs. DADOS can help with these objectives, offering PROs for various specialties including orthopedics, plastic surgery, rheumatology, rehabilitation, as well as prostate and head and neck cancer. Designed with the patient in mind, DADOS guides care delivery and allows physicians to tailor treatment to the needs of each patient.
