Standardised measurement of patient outcomes
Increasing the quality of healthcare involves capturing the information from the patient's perspective regarding outcomes and experience. Unfortunately, the systematic collection and use of this information is difficult due to a lack of standardisation and accurate measurement methods. To offer a solution, the EU-funded H2O project will design and configure independent, patient-centred health outcomes observatories (H2Os) that will collect and accurately measure information from the patient's perspective. The data from patients, providers and healthcare decision-makers will be collected and elaborated, enabling the evaluation of new technologies and encouraging better decision making in the healthcare sector. The project will establish ethical and legally sound H2Os in four countries for three diseases. Connecting these under a pan-European umbrella will allow the H2O methodology to be adopted by other countries as well.
