How do I interpret the DASH insights?

The Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand (DASH) survey is a patient reported outcomes measure used to assess a patient’s ability to perform certain upper extremity activities. It is scored on a scale of 0 to 100 with a score of 0 representing no upper extremity disability and a score of 100 representing severe upper extremity disability.

Baseline surveys are sent prior to the intervention for upper extremity pain and disability. In reviewing your physicians’ scores, you should expect to see a higher baseline score for patients followed by decreasing scores with each subsequent administration point.
