Sean Bissell, Zoe King, Sahil Sandhu, and Michelle Wong display their research at Duke Visible Thinking. The group collaborated with the Duke Cancer Institute and the Duke Institute for Health Innovation to examine how to better facilitate the integration of electronic patient reported outcomes (ePROs) into clinician workflow. Patient-reported outcomes (PROs) help providers proactively assess patients’ symptoms through validated questionnaires. Yet despite the known benefits of using ePRO (Electronic Patient-Reported Outcomes), there has been limited adoption due to technological and workflow barriers. This project is part of the community-engaged, Social Science Research Lab course "Evaluating Health Innovation" (EHD 290s), taught by Jessica Sperling and engages students in project-based learning in social science research principles and their real-world application.
