ICHOM is a non-profit organization committed to transforming health care. ICHOM was co-founded in November 2012 by Professor Michael Porter of Harvard Business School, Stefan Larsson from the Boston Consulting Group, and Professor Martin Ingvar of the Karolinska Institutet. Its mission is to unlock the potential of Value-Based Health Care by defining global Sets of Patient-Centered Outcome Measures  that really matter to patients for the most relevant medical conditions and by driving adoption and reporting of these measures worldwide.

ICHOM brings together leading experts from around the world with a number of different initiatives. The development of Sets of Patient-Centered Outcome Measures  remains at the core of what we do and we have produced 43 Sets so far. This work is widely publicized through our conference program, which runs throughout the year and we produce the largest global value-based health care event annually.  Our Partner Programme gives implementation support to providers who require help implementing standard sets. Our online community, ICHOM Connect, offers a space for healthcare professionals to meet, discuss, evaluate and benchmark their projects and future work.  IN 2022, we have developed our Accreditation package, which allows users to download ICHOM Sets and become ICHOM Certified for their implementation projects.
