Sustainable, usable for all patients and scalable for all areas

Dr. Andreas Tecklenburgspokesman for the independent jury, praises the project:

“The project impressively shows how the Charité, as a large company, values, systematically records and evaluates patients and their assessment of their illness. This puts the patient’s perspective and their view of the quality of treatment more at the forefront of care. This increases adherence and thus sustainability of the treatment. The project is also exemplary in terms of applicability: the PROMs at the Charité can be used for all patients and can be scaled to all areas thanks to integration into the clinic information system.”

The project: patient-centered across the board

The structured recording of health from the patient’s perspective is a central element of modern healthcare providers. The “Charité PROM Rollout” project aims to comprehensively record the self-reported health of all Charité patients in routine care. The regular recording of PROMs is intended not only to improve communication between medical staff and patients, but also to generally promote patient-oriented medical treatment at the Charité in order to provide better health care and higher quality of results and quality of life for patients to reach. The routine PROM survey is already carried out in the breast center of the Clinic for Gynecologythe facilities of the Spinal Centerin the Center for Musculoskeletal Surgeryin the Clinic for Urology and the Medical clinic with a focus on psychosomatics at the Charité implemented and currently being introduced in other clinics and departments.
