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.
