The ICHOM Set of Patient-Centered Outcome Measures for Hip & Knee Osteoarthritis is the result of hard work by a group of leading physicians, measurement experts and patients. It is our recommendation of the outcomes that matter most to patients with Hip & Knee Osteoarthritis. We urge all providers around the world to start measuring these outcomes to better understand how to improve the lives of their patients.

  1. Recommended to track via the Numeric Pain Rating Scale
  2. Recommended to track via the Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score – Physical Function Shortform (KOOS-PS) and the Hip Disability and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score – Physical Function Shortform (HOOS-PS)
  3. Recommended to track via the EQ-5D-3L or the SF-12.

All of the basic information you need to implement ICHOM Sets is available in the links above. However, for a faster, more easily integrated process, we offer digitised versions of the Set measures. These are designed for immediate upload to existing EMR systems. This is available as part of our Accreditation package, which recognises your work in putting patient outcomes at the heart of treatment.
