    This event has passed Get Tickets

    Event description

    West Australia is the last Australian state or territory to develop an Electronic Medical Record. While we are used to being able to draw money out of any bank’s ATM, our health system remains largely paper-based. Join us for part 2 in our three-part series on digital health and the Electronic Medical Record. This time we are diving into the issue of Patient Reported Outcome Measures - or PROMS. Beyond clinical indicators such as reduced blood pressure, PROMs can measure what matters to consumers, help track quality of life and wellbeing indicators from the health care we receive.

    Chaired by Pip Brennan, this session will start with a description of what Patient Reported Outcome Measures are, by WA's Dr Aron Chakera. We will then hear from Dr Christine Georges about the experience of digitising PROMs at Cabrini Health. 

    These are some of the questions we have asked our speakers to prepare for: 

    • What are PROMs?
    • What is PROMs data used for?
    • How does digitising PROMs benefit consumers?
    • How can PROMs be linked to an EMR?
    • How can PROMs be structured to be user-friendly, and improve completion rates?

    Do you have questions you want to put to the panel? Register for this event and you will be prompted to include your question. You can also ask questions live during the event.
