Final Report Published: Advancing the Collection and Use of Patient-Reported Outcomes (PRO) through Health Information Technology
April 1, 2020
ESAC, Inc. is proud to have been able to participate in ONC’s initiative in Advancing the Collection and Use of Patient-Reported Outcomes (PRO) through Health Information Technology as part of ONC’s portfolio of patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) projects. There were several pieces of this project, including creating a FHIR API Implementation Guide for PRO (demonstrating the value in using a FHIR API, which is now used across many PRO projects), standardizing the collection, exchange, and integration of PRO data which will facilitate interoperability of this data among EHR systems and other health IT solutions, an environmental scan of the PROM and the PRO data captured by PROMs (Patient Reported Outcome Measurements).

We are quite impressed with not only by the technical skills provided by ESAC's software engineers but also by the depth and breadth of their subject matter experts who have provided guidance on standards and interoperability, quality assurance, and project management issues.
ESAC significantly improved the quality of bioinformatics applications of the NCI CBIIT program using industry best practices to ensure systems were validated both functionally and scientifically for use by the community.
