Patient-Centered Outcome Measures



The ICHOM Set of Patient-Centered Outcome Measures for Adults who live with type 1 and 2 Diabetes 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 Diabetes. We urge all providers around the world to start measuring these outcomes to better understand how to improve the lives of their patients.

  1. Evaluated via WHO-5
  2. Evaluated via PAID
  3. Evaluated via PHQ-9

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.
