PROMIS: Patient-Related Outcomes Measurement Information System
The Common Fund’s Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) program created new paradigms for how clinical research information is collected, used, and reported. PROMIS addressed a need in the clinical research community for a rigorously tested patient reported outcome (PRO) measurement tool that uses recent advances in information technology, psychometrics, and qualitative, cognitive, and health survey research to measure PROs such as pain, fatigue, physical functioning, emotional distress, and social role participation that have a major impact on quality-of-life across a variety of chronic diseases. For current information about PROMIS, please visit the HealthMeasures website.
PROMIS includes over 300 measures of physical, mental, and social health for use with the general population and with individuals living with chronic conditions. PDFs of PROMIS® measures need no preparation, are "respondent ready," and available for free.
