- •A set of Patient Reported Outcome Measurement Information System (PROMIS) scales and a global rating of normal function (GRNF) were associated with patient status (patient acceptable symptom state [PASS]) in musculoskeletal patients seen in primary care.
- •Self-efficacy of managing symptoms was equally associated with patient status as other health domains typically associated with musculoskeletal problems (ie, physical function, pain interference).
- •Individual PROMIS scales and GRNF were successful at identifying up to ∼70% of patients with ∼70% accuracy.
- •Further studies are needed to evaluate whether combinations of PROMIS scales or other generic health scales can be combined to improve accuracy of determining patient status.
- •This analysis identifies thresholds associated with PROMIS physical function, pain interference, and GRNF scales that may assist providers with clinical decisions.
