Additionally, as the technology partner of the International Consortium for Health Outcomes Measurement (ICHOM), OutcomeMD works to respect ICHOM’s recommended PROMs for inflammatory bowel disease when possible.

For GI conditions that encompass more than one patient area or domain (for example, reflux + pain behavior + pain intensity), OutcomeMD has developed clusters of multiple PROs based on validated medical literature. With our PRO clusters, you will always have a comprehensive view of how your patient is progressing.
The value of OutcomeMD to Gastroenterology:
  • Provide comprehensive care management by quickly monitoring a range of physical symptoms of the GI tract through use of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) GI item bank.
    • Many patients do not follow a clearly defined disease path, and instead experience a range of physical symptoms including belly pain, nausea, diarrhea, etc. that must be tracked in order to identify treatment options1.
  • Identify the impact of GI diseases that may include consequences to mental healthIdentify the impact of GI diseases that may include consequences to mental health.
    • Although many GI illnesses are marked by morbidity rather than mortality, their potential to be detrimental to patient quality of life on a daily basis means measuring disease burden and impact becomes critical2,3.

Do you need a PROM that is not in OutcomeMD? We routinely add new, validated PROMs into OutcomeMD to ensure that you can track all patient outcomes that will allow you to optimize care management. If you would like to send your patients a PROM that is not yet available in our software platform, let us know.

Did your patient have a great outcome? With OutcomeMD, your patients with good outcomes can now publicly celebrate their improvement with ease by posting on their social media accounts (lead generation) and on your review sites (reputation management)!
