What is the Role of Patient Reported Outcome Measures in Mental Health?

The healthcare industry promotes the use of Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) to engage patients in giving information to their health care providers about patients’ responses to care given for their health conditions, medical and mental health symptoms, pain, etc.  PROMs allow health care providers to have feedback concerning patients’ well-being, physical and emotional functional status, health behaviors, and experience with care.
