Patient Reported Outcomes (PRO) Infrastructure Workshop

PCORIThe Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) is hosting this event, along with the PCORI Methodology Committee, to discuss potential strategies for increasing the integration of Patient Reported Outcomes (PRO) into electronic health records (EHRs). This event is set up as a workshop so that a variety of experts, including clinicians, researchers, policy makers and more, can work together to develop an action plan for enhancing use of PROs.

The Election Results are in and Shared Decision Making is here to Stay

President Obama’s re-election now makes it all but certain that implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will progress. With a clearer picture of the health care landscape ahead of us, the Informed Medical Decisions Foundation and our colleagues will continue to pursue the opportunities laid out in the ACA to foster nation-wide implementation of shared decision making (SDM). I’d like to point out two key organizations established through the ACA that we hope to work closely with over the coming years. The first being the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI), which cultivates health care transformation by finding new ways to pay for and deliver better care and better health at lower costs.

The Foundation’s Medical Editors: Change Agents in Health Care

The Informed Medical Decisions Foundation’s medical editors play a crucial role in the development of our Shared Decision-Making® programs, reviewing and approving all of the clinical content that we include. Beyond their work on these decision aid programs, all of our medical editors are champions of shared decision making in their own fields. Their work outside of the Foundation to expand our shared decision making knowledge makes them ‘change agents’ in the medical industry.

Recently a few of our medical editors have made some noteworthy accomplishments. Dr. Ebony Boulware was named the chief of the division of general internal medicine at Duke Medicine and will start that position next week. Her extensive shared decision making research was a contributing factor in attaining her new position. Dr. Michael Pignone was selected as the newest member of the US Preventive Services Task Force, which makes evidence based recommendations about clinical preventive services. His work on the board will impact clinical standards for many professional societies.

Just last week Dr. John Wong received a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Grant. The PCORI Funding Awards are aimed at finding ways to better deliver health care, improve care and lower costs. John’s grant aims to advance comparative effectiveness research by looking at outcomes that matter to patients, methods of combining evidence from observational studies and randomized controlled trials, and by identifying methods for assessing the value of evidence. John credits his work with the Foundation as an important piece of his accomplishment, “a grant from the Informed Medical Decisions Foundation supporting an initial collaboration with Duke from a few years back provided critical preliminary results that made the PCORI application possible.”

We are extremely proud of our medical editors for their contribution to our decision aid programs and for their continued efforts to spread shared decision making throughout the health care system.

Our medical editors share their reflections on working with the Foundation in this short video. We hope you enjoy hearing directly from these ‘change agents’.
