Patient reported outcomes (PROs) are unique as they are focused on the patient as the health outcomes they collect are reported by patients, themselves. The health outcomes span multiple parameters including patient-health status (physical and mental functioning), disease symptoms, Quality of Life (QoL), and treatment satisfaction.
PROs play a vital role as patients are often engaged and informed stakeholders who are increasingly aware of their treatment modalities and corresponding effectiveness. In addition, patient satisfaction impacts the clinical outcomes and is considered a primary quality measure. Our team at CHEORS has significant expertise in managing PRO studies to support clinical research and decision making.
