Company description

PRISM is a user-friendly mobile app that makes it easy to collect standardized PRO patient data in various clinical settings and seamlessly integrates that data into the electronic health record (EHR) making it available to clinicians at the point of care. Patient Reported Outcomes (PROs) directly reflect the “voice of the patient” and provide an avenue for patient engagement and shared decision making. PROs provide a quantifiable bridge between subjective patient symptoms and subjective physician interpretation. Patients have found the app to be easy to use and facilitates quick survey completion. Clinicians have found the PRO data to help inform their clinical decision making and support changes to clinical care. PRISM uses the latest Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) standard for accessing PROs and for storing the results into the EHR.

    The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) sponsored the Step Up App Challenge, a multi-phase competition to address the need for greater use of standardized patient-reported outcomes (PRO) data in clinical care and research. The goal of the Step Up App Challenge was to develop a user-friendly app capable of collecting standardized PRO data in various ambulatory settings, including primary and specialty care. This effort is part of AHRQ’s support for HHS Secretary Alex Azar’s priority on increasing value in healthcare by empowering patients with data and information to help them take an active role in making decisions about their care.
