MARCQI is working with providers across Michigan to obtain Patient Reported OutcomeS (PROS) for patients who have undergone a hip or knee joint replacement. These questionnaires are very important tools that help providers better care for their patients. PROS collection also helps other patients across Michigan who will have future joint replacements.
While a doctor can judge the clinical outcome of the surgery, only the patient can convey how much they have improved after surgery. Patients will be asked to complete a questionnaires about how their health and lifestyle have been affected by hip or knee pain and/or stiffness. The questionnaires that MARCQI collects are the PROMIS-10, HOOS JR or KOOS JR, two questions regarding Opioid Use and three supplemental questions recommended by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Service (CMS).
The questionnaire sets usually take less than five minutes for a patient to complete. MARCQI recommends PROS collection at the following times:
- Within 90 days of surgery
- 2-16 Weeks post-op
- 1 Year post-op
- 2, 5, 10 Years post-op
