The ICHOM Set of Patient-Centered Outcome Measures for Inflammatory Arthritis 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 patients with Inflammatory Arthritis. We urge all providers around the world to start measuring these outcomes to better understand how to improve the lives of their patients.
- Multiple outcome instruments will be linked to domain-specific common metrics, using item response theory
- Combination of subjective and objective measures: acute phase response, joint assessment, body surface area & enthesitis and dactylitis (PsA)

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.
