PROsetta Stone: Translate Patient-Reported Outcome Measure Scores to PROMIS Scores

The PROsetta Stone project developed mathematical links between commonly used patient-reported outcome measures and PROMIS scores. This work takes a major step toward establishing the relationships between measures of similar concepts. Linked measures include FACT/FACIT, GAD-7, HOOS/KOOS, ODI, PHQ-9, SF-36, and many others. Linking tables, publications, and more information is available on the PROsetta Stone website.
