PROMIS - Improving the use of Patient Reported Outcomes

Thanks to Professor Arthur Stone for pointing to this exciting initiative in improving the science behind patient-reported outcomes in the US.

This initiative -the Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) - aims to revolutionize the way patient-reported outcome tools are selected and employed in clinical research and practice evaluation. It will also establish a national resource for accurate and efficient measurement of patient-reported symptoms and other health outcomes in clinical practice.
