Below is a message sent from the AIR PCM Pilot Projects Team:
What would health care measurement look like if it reflected what patients say they need and want?
The American Institutes for Research (AIR) developed five principles for patient-centered measurement (PCM) to begin to answer that question. The five principles define the essential elements of patient-centered measurement as being: patient-driven, holistic, transparent, comprehensible & timely, and co-created.
With funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) ,AIR is seeking proposals for small-scale pilots that demonstrate ways to implement the five principles for patient-centered measurement in real-world setting. The goals of this program are to identify lessons learned and promising practices across a range of implementation strategies and to build momentum for further innovation across a community of patient-centered measurement stakeholders.
AIR will award up to four 18-month pilot projects with funding up to $197,000 per pilot.
