Abstract

Patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) has emerged as a strategy to improve the outcome of total knee arthroplasty. The use of PROMs in routine clinical practice has accelerated because health care in the United States is shifting from a volume-based to a value-based reimbursement system in which quality is increasingly being measured using PROMs. Electronic, internet-based platforms, such as Functional and Outcomes Research for Comparative Effectiveness in Total Joint Replacement, currently exist which offer turn-key solutions for PROM collection, trending, analysis, and benchmarking for busy clinicians. Successful systems provide real-time trended PROM scores that inform shared decision making, optimize patient care, and enable comparisons among practices.
