PROMs Pilot Study

Take part in the Patient Reported Outcome Measure Pilot being run with Physitrack

PROMs study open now 

Osteopathy Australia is recruiting osteopaths to join a pilot program to digitally collect Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) in osteopathic practice. The use of PROMs in osteopathic practice is encouraged as PROMs can provide strong evidence-based practice that will help advocate and validate the Australian osteopathic profession, provide a strong basis for improvements in patient care from osteopathic intervention, and help build the professional standard of osteopathic care alongside other allied health professions in Australia. Outcome Measure data can also help the organisation with future research, policy, and advocacy work.

This research project is designed to fit into your clinical workflow with minimal impact on your practice and patients.

As part of the pilot, we are working with digital PROM provider Physitrack to allow Osteopathy Australia to aggregate deidentified PROM data from patients with knee, hip, and back complaints. Osteopaths who take part will be trained on how to assign PROMs to patients via the Physitrack platform, and data will automatically be deidentified, aggregated, and exported to Osteopathy Australia.
