What is the PHO?
The PROMIS® Health Organization was formed in 2008 by PROMIS principal investigators to develop and validate the PROMIS item banks.
The PHO is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that welcomes members from around the world to bring the "patient's voice" to the forefront of care.
The PHO is led by a board of directors with membership opportunities open to all with an interest in PROMIS. The PHO board and members work to encourage the use of PROMIS by offering guidance and education on the scientific standards to promote widespread use and adoption of PROMIS.
