Examples of common endocrine PROMs in OutcomeMD:
Condition PROM PROM use in the literature
Aging Male syndrome
  • Aging Male Symptom Scale (AMS)
  • Androgen Deficiency in the Aging Male (ADAM)
    Questionnaire
Diabetes
  • Diabetes Symptom Checklist – Revised (DSC-R)
Obesity
  • Obesity-Specific Quality of Life (OSQoL) Index
All endocrine conditions
including hyperparathyroid disease,
hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism
  • National Institutes of Health (NIH) Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) validated person-centred measures to track all relevant symptoms including:
    • Fatigue
    • Physical function
    • Anxiety
    • Depression
    • Sleep disturbance
    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 diabetes when possible.

For endocrine conditions that encompass more than one patient area or domain (for example, obesity + physical function + general health), 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 Endocrinology:
  • Improve your patients’ health and identify clinically relevant changes through routine outcome tracking.
    • The use of a well-validated patient reported outcome measure (PROM) by patients with thyroid disease can quickly identify responses to treatment and guide decision-making1.
  • Easily monitor symptom burden, disease control and emotional health to comprehensively assess patients and identify those with suboptimal disease control.
    • Over 50% of patients with Type 1 diabetes do not meet their glycemic control goals, and psychological and psychosocial barriers are a major contributing factor.2 Consequently, several diabetes guidelines recommend routine assessment of psychological wellness.3,4.

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)!
