Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMS)

PROMs are used within Just one body to collect information from our patients anonymously, to allow us to reflect and improve on the effectiveness of our treatments and the quality of our patient's experience of our clinics. 
Asking patients for feedback is now normal practice in UK healthcare; the NHS has been using PROMs to improve it's services since April 2009.
To support osteopaths to collect such information, the National Council of Osteopathic Research has developed a standardised, validated Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) app that we use within our clinic.

What do we do with this information

We use this information in two way:

1/ We internally review of our processes, quality of care and effectiveness in order to ensure we are offering the best service we can. This information is used by practitioners to review our treatment interventions and explore how various approaches are more or less effective. 

2/ We use this data to evidence the effectiveness of our services to public and private organisations. Osteopathy, particularly is not a well evidenced profession and the effectiveness of its support is not a well trodden path. The focus on evidence-based medicine is increasing and well feel being able to present the effectiveness of our support in a recognised and validated method is a positive step forwards.

Will we share your results with anyone else?

We won't share information that have your name or any personal information to anyone else. To be blunt, you become a number. NCOR then attach your number to the result you entered in your questionnaires.
