 PATIENT REPORTED OUTCOME MEASURES
Patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) are important tools used to measure a patient’s perception of their health status. A survey to assess the patient’s opinion of their joint-specific pain and functional abilities is sent to HOI joint replacement patients pre and post-surgery. Patients electing to have joint replacement surgery at HOI had significant improvement on joint-specific PROMs.

Veterans RAND 12-Item Health Survey (VR-12)
Pre-op 1 Year
Preoperative mean score out of 100: 53.31. Patient-reported improvement at one year – mean score: 77.55.
The VR-12 is a global patient-reported health measure to assess the patient’s overall perspective of his
or her health. It includes physical functioning, role limitations due to physical or mental health problems, pain, energy, mental health, social functioning and general health. Both knee and hip replacement patients reported significant improvement at one year post-surgery. While HOI does a comprehensive assessment that includes both the physical and mental components, the following outcome scores reflect only the physical component.
