  • Rose Dyspnea Scale (RDS)
Peripheral Artery Disease
  • Peripheral Artery Disease Quality of Life
    Questionnaire (PADQOL)*
All cardiac conditions
  • National Institutes of Health (NIH) Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) validated person-centred measures to track all relevant symptoms including:
    • Depression
    • Dyspnea
    • Physical function
    • Fatigue
    Below are links for more information on OutcomeMD’s use of:
  • PROMIS Computer Adaptive Tests
  • PROMIS, Neuro-QoL, ASCQ-Me, & NIH Toolbox

Additionally, as the technology partner of the International Consortium for Health Outcomes Measurement (ICHOM), OutcomeMD works to respect ICHOM’s recommended PROMs for atrial fibrillation, heart failure, and coronary artery disease when possible.

For cardiovascular conditions that encompass more than one patient area or domain (for example, dyspnea + depression + anxiety + physical function), OutcomeMD has developed clusters of multiple PROs based on validated medical literature. With our PRO clusters, you will always have a comprehensive view of how your patient is progressing.
The value of OutcomeMD to Cardiology:
  • Provide comprehensive care management by supplementing clinical data with self-reported patient data.
    • Clinical cardiology measures are essential but have been shown to demonstrate an incomplete characterization of the patient experience1.
  • Facilitate outcome-based decision-making through symptom monitoring to identify those who require a change in treatment plan.
    • Symptoms predictive of worsening cardiology outcomes are often underreported, limiting clinician understanding of treatment effectiveness2.
  • Assess cardiology-related outcomes that are meaningful to your patient.
    • Although longevity is often considered the sole goal of treatment, improved quality of life has been named as a significant – and potentially greater - outcome by cardiology patients3.

Do you need a PROM that is not in OutcomeMD? We routinely add new, validated PROMs into OutcomeMD to ensure that you can track all patient outcomes that will allow you to optimize care management. If you would like to send your patients a PROM that is not yet available in our software platform, let us know.

Did your patient have a great outcome? With OutcomeMD, your patients with good outcomes can now publicly celebrate their improvement with ease by posting on their social media accounts (lead generation) and on your review sites (reputation management)!
