Introduction/Purpose: PROMIS values are being adopted due to ease of use and influence on clinical decision making. Studies support the use of PROMIS physical function (PF), pain interference (PI), and Depression (D) for pre-surgical decision making. Patient Acceptable Symptom State (PASS) is a validated outcome measure commonly used in other areas of medicine and surgery that captures when patient’s symptoms reach a daily acceptable level. Knowing what PROMIS scores are associated with a patient’s PASS(Yes)/(No) rating would further enhance the use of PROMIS scales. The purpose of this study: 1) association of PROMIS scales with a PASS rating, 2) threshold values of PROMIS PF, PI, D associated with PASS rating, and 3) whether PROMIS, and patient demographics are predictive of a PASS rating.
