PROMs Pilot Study

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

Interested in digitally collecting Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs)?

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. 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 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.

The pilot study is due to start in early 2024 - For now, you can pre-register your interest in participating and can view the practitioner and patient information sheets attached below.

More information will be made available when the pilot study launches.
