International Consortium for Health Outcomes Measurement (ICHOM)

By Tom Foley.

ICHOM has been set up to define global Standard Sets of outcome measures for all medical conditions and to drive adoption, reporting and benchmarking of these measures worldwide23. Essentially, these standard sets populate
Porter’s hierarchy24 for each condition. They are created through international collaborations among patients, clinicians and outcomes researchers. The development of several of these standard sets are currently being led from the ICHOM base in London and are being supported by NHS organisations.
