For ENT conditions that encompass more than one patient area or domain (for example, mastoiditis + pain intensity), 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 Otolaryngology:
  • Identify the impact of ENT diseases that may include consequences to mental health.
    • Although many illnesses affecting the ears, nose and throat are marked by morbidity rather than mortality, their potential to be detrimental to patient quality of life on a daily basis means measuring disease burden and impact becomes critical1.

Otolaryngologists report that using patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) for clinical updates helps clinicians target patient symptoms more accurately, identifying which contribute to patient burden and which have improved after each intervention2

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)!
