Using PROs to Validate Your Research – The Abstracts from AAHKS 2016

November 14, 2016


AAHKS 2016 – Day 2

The second day of AAHKS was all about abstract presentations. We curated a selection of papers whose authors either utilized PROs to validate their research, or their paper addressed cost issues, outcomes, risk adjustments, or bundled payments. We shared what we took away as the key message of each paper, but you can also follow the links to read the full abstract.
