How do patient reported outcome studies work?

Surveys will be administered and collected by our partner organization, PatientIQ. Once you are booked for surgery, you will be sent a secure link via text message and/or email to setup your profile and complete a pre-operative survey that assesses your mobility, joint function, and quality of life. From your personalized dashboard on PatientIQ, you will be able to watch videos from your healthcare team explaining your procedure and what to expect after surgery. After your surgery, you will be asked to complete surveys at predetermined intervals, so that your surgeon can track your recovery process. You will be sent reminder texts and emails to complete any post-operative surveys that have upcoming due dates. You can complete the survey in the comfort and privacy of your home or anywhere else on your smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer. Each survey should take 10 minutes or less to complete.

Why am I being asked to complete these survey questions?

This information is valuable because it facilitates clinical research that can improve outcomes, and help your surgeon maintain high quality patient care. It can assist your surgeon in evaluating your progress since there will be a database containing de-identified information on other patients who had similar surgical procedures to yours. By reviewing this information from past patients, your surgeon gets valuable insights into how treatment can be improved for future patients. The greater the number of patients participating in filling out the surveys, the more powerful this process for improving patient care becomes.

How does completing these surveys benefit me?

When you participate in the patient reported outcomes studies by filling out surveys sent to you, your surgeon will be able to track your progress and the overall success of your surgery by monitoring your level of pain, function, and general quality of life before and after surgery. Your participation is very valuable to your surgeon as well as to the optimization of your post-operative care. Better clinical decisions for your benefit can be made when your survey information is compared to that of other patients who have undergone the same or similar procedures.
