Patient Reported Outcomes

The primary function of musculoskeletal care is to enhance mobility and decrease pain. For an increasing number of orthopaedic surgeons, patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) represent the best tool available to determine whether a musculoskeletal service is successful.

The 2017 Texas Legislature became the first state legislature to pass a law related to patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) when Senator Judith Zaffirini and Representative JD Sheffield, DO passed SB 55, which directed the state’s health plans to study the potential utility of PROMs within their own health plans.
