Abstract

Patient-reported outcomes measures form the backbone of outcomes evaluation in orthopaedics, with most of the literature now relying on these scoring tools to measure change in patient health status. This patient-reported information is increasingly collected routinely by orthopaedic providers but use of the data is typically restricted to academic research. Developments in electronic data capture and the outcome tools themselves now allow use of this data as part of the clinical consultation. This review evaluates the role of patient reported outcomes data as a tool to enhance daily orthopaedic clinical practice, and documents how developments in electronic outcome measures, computer-adaptive questionnaire design and instant graphical display of questionnaire can facilitate enhanced patientclinician shared decision making.
