Health Catalyst recently released results from a survey of healthcare executives' use of patient-reported outcomes (PROs). Here are some key findings from the report:

·         18% of executives always use PROs to guide clinical care.

·         Nearly 3 in 4 who said they rarely/never use PROs plan to begin using them in 1-3 years.

·         36% of respondents said "time and/or money" was the most significant barrier to using PROs.

·         1 in 4 said difficulty fitting PROs into clinicians' daily workflow is the greatest barrier.

·         Technology was listed as the most significant barrier to PRO use by 15% of respondents.

·         59% selected "chronic care tracking" when asked to list areas in which they use PROs.
