Importance of Patient Reported Outcomes (PROs)
Faculty: Somali Burgess, PhD
What are patient reported outcomes (PROs), and how are they important to managed care pharmacy? This is the perfect session to build your foundational knowledge on how PROs support better care for patients. PROs use patient experiences with medications and treatments to provide data and feedback, which allows clinicians and patients to choose better interventions to help drive better outcomes and value. While the health care system strives to better use PROs, this session will also discuss challenges and barriers with the implementation of PROs in managed care pharmacy, as well as opportunities to help overcome those barriers and improve patient care.
