The PROTEUS Guide to Implementing Patient-Reported Outcomes in Clinical Practice: A Synthesis of Resources (the PROTEUS-Practice Guide) can help you design, implement, and manage patient-reported outcome (PRO) systems and related data in clinical care settings.
The information in the PROTEUS-Practice Guide applies in a broad range of environments, including solo and group practices, small clinics, inpatient and outpatient settings, and large integrated health systems.
Download a PDF of the entire PROTEUS-Practice Guide for a synthesis of information drawn from a range of foundational PRO practice resources.
The PROTEUS-Practice Guide is organized into 16 chapters which span three key stages for using PROs in clinical practice: Design, Implementation, and System & Data Management.
Each chapter is excerpted and featured on its own dedicated webpage, with additional context and suggested resources.
To help you find the PRO tips you need, explore the webpages listed here by chapter title.
While individual-level patient data collected to inform that patient’s own care can be aggregated for use as real-world evidence, in quality assessment efforts, and in other ways, this Guide focuses primarily on the use of PROs in individual patient-clinician interactions (i.e., my clinician using my data to inform my own care).
