Congenital Heart Disease
The ICHOM Set of Patient-Centered Outcome Measures for Congenital Heart Disease is the result of hard work by a group of leading physicians, measurement experts and patients. It is our recommendation of the outcomes that matter most to persons with CHD. We urge all providers around the world to start measuring these outcomes to better understand how to improve the lives of their patients.
1) Pediatric Quality of Life measured by the Satisfaction with Life – Child
2) Adult Quality of Life measured by the Satisfaction with Life Scale
3) Pediatric Health-Related Quality of Life/Perceived Health Status measured by Pediatric Cardiac Quality of Life Inventory (PCQLI)
4) Adult Health-Related Quality of Life/Perceived Health Status measured by the PROMIS Scale v1.2 – Global Health
5) Productivity measured by the Work Productivity and Activity Impairment Questionnaire – General Health v2.0
6) Depression measured by the Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9)
7) Anxiety measured by the General Anxiety Disorder (GAD-7)
A = Adult outcomes
P = Pediatric outcomes

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.
