Patient-reported Indicator Surveys (PaRIS)

PaRIS-OECD-2020


PaRIS is the OECD’s Patient-Reported Indicator Surveys initiative where countries work together on developing, standardising and implementing a new generation of indicators that measure the outcomes and experiences of health care that matter most to people

The International Survey of People Living with Chronic Conditions will be the first of its kind to assess the outcomes and experiences of patients managed in primary care across countries. The PaRIS survey aims to fill a critical gap in primary health care, by asking about aspects like access to health care & waiting times, as well as quality of life, pain, physical functioning & psychological well-being. Contact us to join the survey.

 

What matters to people?


How do people with chronic conditions feel about their own health?


Do people with chronic conditions feel involved in decisions made about their care?


To what extent do chronic conditions limit people in participating in social activities?


How do outcomes and experiences vary with people from different socio-economic backgrounds?

Who will PaRIS help?

  • POLICY MAKERS, by having better information on where to focus quality improvement efforts and prioritise spending
  • PATIENTS, by having their say on what treatments work best for them
  • HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS, by better understanding how to improve the quality of the care they provide

Learn more about the PaRIS International Survey of People Living with Chronic Conditions

The PaRIS International Survey of People Living with Chronic Conditions will be the first international survey of patient-reported health outcomes and experiences of adults living with one or more chronic conditions who are managed in primary or other ambulatory care settings.

The PaRIS survey fills a critical information gap in primary care, focusing on (1) Patient-Reported Experience Measures (PREMS), which measure how patients experience health care and refers to practical aspects of care, such as accessibility, care co-ordination and provider-patient communication and (2) Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMS), which provide information on how patients assess the results of the care they receive. PROMS contain information about outcomes such as quality of life, physical functioning and psychological well-being.

The PaRIS Patient Advisory Panel

The importance of incorporating patient input is essential when developing surveys to capture patient outcomes and experiences. To help ensure that the PaRIS International Survey of People Living with Chronic Conditions will serve patients’ needs, OECD countries are convening a Patient Advisory Panel to advise on survey design, implementation, and activities related to patient engagement.
