Patient-reported outcomes, or PROs, typically are used for clinical research and to guide patient care. They also can be an invaluable tool for shared decision making. But PROs are now being increasingly integrated with other areas, including performance measurement of hospitals and physicians. In addition, PROs are being incorporated into electronic health records, enabling the use of these data for multiple clinical, research, and administrative applications, with a goal of more broadly promoting patient-centered care. This session looked at the expanded use of PROs through the lens of PCORI-funded projects and insights from other leaders in the field.
