The Patient-Reported Indicators Surveys (PaRIS) benchmark outcomes and experiences of health care that matter to people.
Why PaRIS? Although health systems across the OECD spend around 9% of their GDP on health, it is shocking how little we know about whether health systems are truly delivering what people need. The outcomes achieved for patients and how they experience care are rarely measured in a systematic and rigorous way. It is difficult to improve what is not been measured. The PaRIS initiative addresses this major gap.

The objective of PaRIS is to support the creation and collection of state-of-the-art, internationally comparable patient-reported indicators to advance high performing, people-centred health systems.
To do this, PaRIS is undertaking two works streams:
The PaRIS Survey of Patients with Chronic Conditions will be the first international survey of patient-reported health outcomes and experiences of adults with one or more chronic conditions who are treated in primary or ambulatory health care settings. The PaRIS survey fills a critical information gap in primary health care, focusing on:
Results from the survey will show how key outcomes and experiences vary across and within countries. This will allow countries to benchmark and learn from each other’s approaches. It will also foster a dialogue with service providers about how to further improve the performance and people-centredness of primary health care services.
Developing the survey on an international level rather than a national level has two main benefits:
