  • June PROMIS Workshops now a Virtual Conference June PROMIS Workshops now a Virtual Conference

    As public health safety concerns related to COVID-19 continue, the PHO Board of Directors concluded that the 2020 PROMIS Training Workshops, scheduled for June 3 & 4 in Chicago, cannot occur in person as planned. 
    To continue to offer high-quality training to meet the needs of new and experienced PROMIS users, the sessions will be transitioned into a virtual conference designed for clinicians, researchers, and healthcare administrators. The conference content and timing will remain as planned. We are currently defining operational details. 

    Although we are unable to unite in Chicago this summer, the PHO is committed to virtually deliver the PROMIS content and connection you need to advance methods to integrate the patient’s perspective in healthcare. We look forward to your participation in the live virtual conference June 3-4, 2020. 

    Thank you for your support of the PHO.

    PROMIS is your simple choice for measuring outcomes that matter to patients, creating value in healthcare for patients. 

    At the end of the day, what's more important than the patient's perception of their health?
