Patient reported measures (PRMs) are surveys that help us to understand what matters most to patients and to find out if the care we deliver supports the outcomes and experiences that patients expect. PRMs provide NSW Health with significant opportunities to improve clinical practice and quality of life, identify excellence and drive system-wide improvements.
Patient Reported Measures Framework
In NSW a range of local initiatives and broader programs already use PRMs. Building on these foundations, NSW Health has developed a Patient Reported Measures Framework to guide how we will use PRMs to move to value based healthcare. The framework will help align existing initiatives and platforms, so we can use PRMs across the system to give patients a greater say in their care.
