Patient-reported outcome measures
Quality of healthcare is increasingly measured from the perspective of the patient using patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs). PROMs are standardized indexes, scales or questionnaires that aim to measure one or more aspects of health. Instead of measuring biomedical or process markers, PROMs measure those outcomes of care that are important to the patient and are a critical component of value-based healthcare.
Our team has much experience in the scientific validation of existing generic or disease-specific PROMs and the development and evaluation of new PROMs for specific outcomes or populations.
