Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) assess the quality of care delivered to NHS patients from the patient perspective. Currently covering four clinical procedures, PROMs calculate the health gains after surgical treatment using pre- and post-operative surveys.
The four procedures are:
- hip replacements
- knee replacements
- groin hernia
- varicose veins
PROMs have been collected by all providers of NHS-funded care since April 2009.
PROMs measure a patient’s health status or health-related quality of life at a single point in time, and are collected through short, self-completed questionnaires. This health status information is collected before and after a procedure and provides an indication of the outcomes or quality of care delivered to NHS patients.
PROMs national-level headline data are published every month with additional organisation and record-level data made available each quarter (typically in February, May, August, and November each year). Data are provisional until a final annual publication is released each year.
PROMs data are available at: http://www.hscic.gov.uk/proms
