Patient Reported Measures - Outcomes that Matter to Patients

Patient Reported Measures - Outcomes that Matter to Patients

The Patient Reported Measures (PRMs) Program aims to:

"Enable patients to provide direct, timely feedback about their health related outcomes and experiences to drive improvement and integration of health care across NSW".


The PRMs program endeavours to support patients and clinicians, and add value to their interactions. The program is divided into two sections, Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) and Patient Reported Experience Measures (PREMs):

  • PROMs are used to help assess and follow up a patient's clinical progress.
  • PREMs help to assess the patient’s experience of health care.

The development and implementation of the Patient Reported Measures (PRMs) Program was identified as a key enabler in the NSW Health Integrated Care Strategy to support consumers, clinicians, Local Health Districts (LHDs), Speciality Health Networks, Primary Health Networks (PHNs) and primary healthcare. The Agency for Clinical Innovation (ACI) is responsible for managing this component of the strategy.
