Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs): learning from the data
Patient reported data shows that elective surgeries lead to health benefits
Annual data for Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) shows that patients who have had elective inpatient surgery for four common elective procedures: hip replacement, knee replacement, varicose vein surgery and groin hernia surgery, are reporting significant health gains. Since recording of PROMs data began in 2009, more than one million patients have now provided information about their operations, and levels of improvement have been consistent in recent years. A guide on how to use the data has been published.
