myCORE is an online questionnaire system that all patients undergoing surgery at the Royal Berkshire Hospital are being encouraged to complete. Your consultant will discuss how you can take part in this exciting initiative.
myCORE provides a safe and secure way for you to complete a questionnaire at specific points in time while you are under our care. This will help us monitor your recovery and measure the quality of the clinical care you receive. You are free to withdraw your participation at any time without giving a reason. This will not affect the standard of care you receive.
At the Royal Berkshire we are asking patients about their health and quality of life before they have an operation, and about their health and the effectiveness of the procedure afterwards. This will help us measure and improve the quality of the care that you receive.
We are passionate about tracking your progress and recovery following surgery. This will ensure that we are all focused to ensure you have the best outcome from your operation.
myCORE is a system which enables the electronic collection of ‘PROMs’ (Patient Reporting Outcome Measures). This allows your healthcare professionals to monitor the improvement in your symptoms and quality of life from a set of simple lifestyle questions
By completing the questionnaires in myCORE, you will be able to score your own recovery at various stages. By answering some very simple questions, we can build up a picture of how well you feel you are recovering from your surgery. This helps us ensure that all patients are getting the very best of care and helps us measure our performance. We can see where we are doing well and where we may need to improve. This all has huge benefits for you and our future patients
All patients are asked to complete a ‘Friends and Family’ questionnaire. This scores the Royal Berkshire on how well you feel you were cared for during your stay and whether you would recommend the Royal Berkshire to Friends and Family for treatment.
