How do I interpret the IKDC Insights?

The International Knee Documentation Committee Questionnaire (IKDC) is a patient reported outcome measure used to evaluate a patient’s symptoms, function, and sports activity for disorders of the knee. Unlike the KOOS/KOOS Jr, it is not a disease specific measure. It is scored on a scale of 0 to 100 with a score of 0 representing severely limited functioning and a score of 100 representing the highest level of functional status.

Baseline surveys are sent prior to the intervention for knee disability. In reviewing your physicians’ scores, you should expect to see a lower baseline score for patients followed by increasing scores with each subsequent administration point.
