PROMIS – the Patient Records and Outcome Management Information System – is the transplant community’s clinical information system.
PROMIS provides real-time, accurate data to support a broad range of functions, all of which are focused on two key outcomes:
- better health for people with end stage disease
- best use of healthcare resources
Care providers can access information about a patient's medical care no matter where the care is delivered. With data collected from BC Transplant Centres, Home Teams and BC Transplant, PROMIS supports:
- individual patient care management
- organ donation and transplantation
- continuous quality improvement and research
- outcomes-based planning
From wait listing a patient for a life-saving transplant to supporting research and resource allocation, PROMIS touches every aspect of organ donation and transplant care within BC.
Data is captured within PROMIS from the moment a potential organ donor is identified within an ICU, all the way through transplant, and post-transplant care throughout a transplant recipient’s life. Through BCPRA’s PROMIS Executive Steering Committee (ESC)
, including representatives of BC’s renal and transplant communities, PROMIS upgrades and improvement initiatives are undertaken regularly.
