University of Colorado Medicine Expands Partnership with PatientIQ to Enhance Quality Across Specialties

CU Medicine expands use of the platform to measure, predict, and improve patient outcomes.

University of Colorado Medicine (CU Medicine), the region’s largest and most comprehensive multi-specialty physician group practice, has expanded its partnership with PatientIQ to prioritize quality improvement across multiple clinical specialties.

With more than 3,500 physicians and advance practice providers, CU Medicine first partnered with PatientIQ in 2019 to collect and measure patient-reported outcomes specific to its orthopedic practice. Today, CU Medicine utilizes the PatientIQ platform to leverage outcomes data within its integrated spine center, orthopedics, sports medicine, plastic surgery, and physical and occupational therapy. The expansion enables CU Medicine to comprehensively measure the quality of its clinical care.

“As our patient population continues to grow, we need to ensure we maintain our standard of excellence across the practice,” said Kenneth Hunt, MD, Vice Chair, Quality, Patient Safety and Outcomes. “PatientIQ is an essential partner in our continuous quality improvement strategy.”

The cloud-based PatientIQ platform automates the collection of patient-reported outcomes by enrolling every CU Medicine patient into digital care pathways that prompt reporting of key health information. The platform then leverages its proprietary analytics engine to offer CU Medicine actionable insights directly within Epic, streamlining the clinician experience.

CU Medicine has collected more than 750,000 outcomes from nearly one-hundred thousand patients, and the expansion will serve to provide even greater visibility into the quality of its clinical care.

“We commend CU Medicine for recognizing the value of patient-reported outcomes as the primary input for continuous quality improvement,” said Matthew Gitelis, CEO, PatientIQ. “Together we will continue to push the boundaries for exceptional clinical care for patients across Colorado.”
