Here is a recap of 2020 successful initiatives:

PHO's First-Ever Virtual Workshop held June 3-4, 2020 - Designed for clinicians, researchers, and health administrators, both new PROMIS users and those experienced with PROMIS, the successful virtual workshop presented a strong practical focus on selecting, using, applying, and interpreting PROMIS measures in the clinical setting.

Developed Live Virtual and On-Demand Learning Opportunities for members and the larger community of PROMIS users and those interested in learning more about PROMIS in research and clinical care. Live webinars focused on general topics (such as IRT, CAT, PROMIS theory) and on clinical implementation of PROMIS with case studies. Recorded webinars offer on-demand opportunities for 24/7 viewing.

Launched a new PHO Website to give a fresh, modern online space to showcase PHO activities, educational opportunities, and resources for both members and non-members.

Expanded Communication with members and others via monthly PHO e-News and email outreach to the broader community of PROMIS researchers, clinicians, and others.

Upgraded the PHO's Technology Infrastructure with the transition to a new association management system to increase internal capabilities and efficiencies for membership administration and registration.

The virtual 6th PROMIS International Conference was held with a 40% increase in registration compared to last year's in-person conference. Great speakers, plenaries, symposium, posters, and interactive sessions spread over three days, Oct. 25-27, allowed learning and engagement from around the world.
