Development of the Patient-Reported Indicators Survey (PaRIS), commissioned by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD)
Project OECD PaRIS
Duration: 2020 - 2024
Many countries deal with a large increase in the number of inhabitants with (multiple) chronic conditions. As a result, the demand for care is changing and countries must adjust their healthcare system in order to be able to provide high-quality care to people with (multiple) chronic conditions, which is also future-proof. Primary care plays an important role in this.
The OECD supports countries in reforming their healthcare system. One of the ways in which this happens is by monitoring and comparing structures, processes and outcomes of care in countries. This is already happening on a large number of indicators, but not yet on so-called patient-reported indicators. Because the voice of the patient is very important for the improvement of chronic care, the OECD Member States have asked the OECD to support the development of such indicators and their implementation in the participating countries.
The international consortium led by Nivel supports the improvement high-quality care to people with (multiple) chronic conditions by developing a survey which defines specifically relevant generic (non-condition-specific) patient-reported indicators.
The survey consist of two questionnaires:
- a questionnaire about the experiences and outcomes of care for primary care users aged 40 and over
- a questionnaire for primary care providers to obtain information about the structure and organization of care
Project design and planning
In the project there are two phases:
- Development, translation and testing of the questionnaires (2020-2021)
- Supporting coordinators in the participating countries in conducting a pilot of the PaRIS Survey and its national implementation (2021-2024)
The consortium consists of:
- Nivel (leading partner)
- Ipsos MORI, Global Market Research and Public Opinion Specialist (United Kingdom)
- University of Exeter (United Kingdom)
- Avedis Donabedian Research Institute, Autonomous University of Barcelona
- Optimedis AG, Partner for Regional Integrated Care (Germany)
