WHY USE PROMIS IN RESEARCH AND CLINICAL PRACTICE?
“Sharing data with our patients has the potential to improve patient understanding of their condition, increase patient engagement and shared decision-making, and improve adherence with recommendations, ranging from medications to physical activity.”
Lisa Shulman, MD, University of Maryland
WHY STANDARDIZE PROMs IN RESEARCH AND CLINICAL PRACTICE?
"Research shows that PROs that are important to patients are often the same for all patients and that most of these PROs can be measured with PROMIS. Much can be gained by standardizing the PROMs being used in research and healthcare for measuring common symptoms, and physical, mental, and social functioning."
