Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs)
PROMs are a method of identifying and addressing supportive care needs of patients. It enables health care clinicians and administrators to find out how the patients perceive the impact of care intervention on their quality of life.
They provide a common language and a basis for meaningful discussion and interaction between patients and their providers. They aim to capture how patients perceive their health and the effects of the health care services they receive.
To ensure the accuracy of data and enable comparisons across settings and over time, PROMs are scientifically- and linguistically-validated instruments. They are typically captured through questionnaires or other survey instruments. Methods and modes of collection vary.
PROMs can be self-administered or administered by an interviewer, and they can be administered on paper, by phone, or electronically using a computer, tablet, smart phone, or other device. PROMs are typically measured at numerous time points after a diagnosis in order to capture the evolution of a condition or particular outcome over time. This allows for a continuous feedback process leading to more refinement and accuracy of results.
