How can we make the best use of information outcomes?
Health and social care policy currently puts considerable emphasis on ‘outcomes’. The new outcomes frameworks for health and social care have at their core patient reported outcome measures (PROMS) and measures of social care-related quality of life. But to what extent do these measures really reflect ‘outcomes’ for people with long-term conditions? How can we make best use of these outcome indicators? What other information do we need to interpret them?
The Department of Health funded policy Research Unit in Quality and Outcomes of person-centred care (QORU) is holding a seminar on 2 April 2012 at LSE to bring together interested parties to discuss how we can improve the quality of services through use of ‘outcome’ data that is increasingly becoming available, but has yet to be fully integrated into health and social care management processes.
