Healthcare providers in the US, Europe, and elsewhere are increasingly being held accountable for the outcomes of the patients they treat. Central to the concept of accountability is a thorough understating of the role of patient-reported outcome measures in healthcare delivery. In the absence of patient-reported outcomes, healthcare providers and oversight agencies must rely on other metrics such as emergency department visits, re-hospitalization, complications, and mortality. Engagement with patients and other key stakeholders is critical to ensuring the outcomes measured are patient-centered. ISOQOL is uniquely positioned to contribute to this international discussion to advance theory, methods, and application of quality of life research in the pursuit of optimal patient-centered outcomes.
