Seamless integration of patient-reported outcome measures in electronic health records
PROs in the Clinical Setting: Implementation Planning Guide
Many decisions are required to customize the Epic PROMIS® app in accordance with the needs of the clinic where the app will be used. For example, clinics must select the appropriate PROs for clinic needs, decide on an administration schedule, agree on event-triggering thresholds, determine workflow, and make many other decisions that will determine how patients and clinicians will experience PROs.
NOTE: The Implementation Planning Guide, the companion Implementation Planning Guide Survey and the Template for Patient-Reported Outcomes Clinic Implementation Plan were originally developed for Epic installations and thus contain references to Epic-specific entities, such as MyChart. While the specific language may not be applicable, the concepts are similar across all EHRs.
Implementation and Configuration Guides
Step-by-step implementation and configuration guides are under development. They will include information for health IT teams implementing and localizing the EASIPRO app in their local environment. Content includes:
How to update Cerner and deploy locally secured infrastructure in a way that is compliant with securing standards and the application itself
How to configure and customize user experience
User guides will be published for clinicians and patients explaining how PRO orders and results can be incorporated into workflow
