Patient-Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR) combines state-of-the-art medical care with a patient-centered approach. Our research is based on understanding patient preferences and focuses on symptoms and Patient-Reported Outcomes (PRO) that matter most to people who live with rheumatic diseases. PCOR seeks to include patient preferences and their symptoms as information to better treat rheumatic diseases. Currently, the Arthritis Center is using the Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement System (PROMIS) to get real time information from patients about how they are being affected by their disease.
Patient-Centered Outcomes Research
Patient-Centered Outcomes Research is the transformation of traditional clinical research in an effort to also focus on the things that matter to patients with chronic conditions. Learn more about Patient-Centered Outcomes Research.
Patient-Reported Outcomes is a large part of PCOR. This is receiving information directly from the patients about how their disease is affecting them on a day-to-day basis. Learn more about Patient-Reported Outcomes.
PROMIS – What is PROMIS?
Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) is used to gather information from patients through a questionnaire on an iPad/tablet. Learn more about PROMIS and how real time information is received during a clinic visit.
