For conditions requiring physical therapy and that encompass more than one patient area or domain (pain + physical function), 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 Physical Therapy:
  • Obtain a current and accurate description of your patient’s health experience and symptoms to inform, treatment decisions.
    • Patient reported outcomes (PROs) have been used in rehabilitation settings to enable patients to identify their goals and to self-assess their progress1.
    • A study of a PRO to assess disability of hand and shoulder found significantly less missing data when patients completed electronic PRO measures (PROMs) vs. paper versions, leading to more comprehensive patient data, with which to base decisions2.
  • Improve your patients’ health and enhance the patient experience by engaging them in routine outcome tracking.
    • Use of PROs were associated with better communication with their physical therapists, and were seen to add significant value to the decision-making process and stimulate quality improvement3.

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)!
