Completed & Harmonized

The ICHOM Set of Patient-Centered Outcome Measures for Venous Thromboembolism results from hard work by a group of leading healthcare providers, researchers, and patient representatives. It represents the outcomes that matter most to people (≥16 years old) with Pulmonary Embolism, Deep Vein Thrombosis, and other related conditions*. We urge all providers worldwide to start measuring these meaningful outcomes, which will guide them to improve their care quality.

  1. Measured using the PROMIS Scale v1.2 – Global Health, PEmb-QoL, and VEINES-QOL questionnaires
  2. Measured using the Post-VTE Functional Status Scale
  3. Measured using the PROMIS Short Form v2.0 – Pain Intensity – 3a
  4. Measured using the PEmb QoL and PROMIS Short Form v1.0 – Dyspnea Severity – 10a
  5. Measured through the question: “Are you satisfied with your VTE treatment?”
  6. Measured using the Anti-Clot Treatment Scale
  7. Measured using the PHQ-9 and GAD-7 questionnaires
  8. Measured through the question: “Have you experienced a change in your expectations, aspirations,
    values, or perspectives on life opportunities since the diagnosis of Venous Thromboembolism?”
  9. Measured using the Villalta Score
  10. Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Disease
  11. Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension

*Including anti-phospholipid syndrome, <3-month life expectancy, pregnancy-related VTE, and cancer-associated thrombosis

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.
