One of the most effective tools to help overcome long term issues, PROMs helps:
- To reduce hospital adverse events and achieve the largest improvement in the Health and Safety and Quality Patient Care.
- In the GP environment for the first time to integrate Primary Health Clinical Care and Public Health.
