AHRQ Publishes Notice Prioritizing Research on Patient Data to Improve Ambulatory Care

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality has published a Special Emphasis Notice to support research on how health information technology can facilitate the collection and use of patient-reported outcomes and patient contextual data to improve the quality of care in ambulatory settings.

Although collection of patient-reported outcomes and contextual data is advancing rapidly, little is known about how to best use the information in primary care and with diverse populations in ambulatory settings.

Patient-reported data provide important information for clinical decision making, quality measurement, practice improvement, and research. This special emphasis notice will support work to understand how patient-reported outcomes can be used to improve quality and outcomes in clinical care.
