The integration of patient outcomes into clinical practice has never been more important than in today's healthcare environment.
Historically, limited efforts have been made within prosthetic rehabilitation to measure outcomes. This was due to uncertainty as to which measures to use and the instruments being far too time consuming for the clinical setting. More recently, through rigorous development and testing, the O&P field has been given tools that can be reasonably integrated into the clinical care pathway and shared with patients and physicians on an ongoing basis to holistically enhance the quality of patient care.
