ConclusionsInformatics solutions can generate timely, tailored office reports including PROs and predictive analytics. Patients successfully complete the pre-visit PRO assessments and clinicians and patients value the report to support shared surgical decisions.
ConclusionThis study was the preparatory phase for a future trial on a method to stimulate setting specific goals. The future trial would provide a thorough understanding of the quality of person-defined goals.
