Patient-Reported Outcome Measures

/Patient-Reported Outcome Measures

Patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) are the tools used to measure and collect data on PROs. Generally, findings are measured by a well-defined and reliable questionnaire. The use of a PRO questionnaire (also called an instrument) is advised when measuring an aspect of the disease or condition that is best known by the patient or is best measured from the patient perspective.PROM questionnaires are designed to be either generic or condition-specific and may measure symptoms, physical function, mental health, and quality of life.  A number of generic instruments have been developed and validated in different populations including EQ-5D, Health Utilities Index, Quality of Well Being, Short Form, PROMIS.
