Decision-making
  • Decisional Conflict Scale
Facial Appearance
Satisfaction
  • Negative Physical Self Scale - Facial Appearance Subscale
Rhinoplasty
  • Rhinoplasty Outcomes Evaluation (ROE) Questionnaire
Self-esteem

All plastic surgeries
  • National Institutes of Health (NIH) Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) validated person-centred measures to track all relevant symptoms including:
    • Positive affect and well-being
    • Pain intensity
    • Pain interference
    • Anxiety
    • Depression
    • Sleep disturbance

  • PROMIS Computer Adaptive Tests
  • PROMIS, Neuro-QoL, ASCQ-Me, & NIH Toolbox
For plastic surgeries that encompass more than one patient area or domain (facial appearance + depression + anxiety), 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 Plastic Surgery:
  • Improve your patients’ health by engaging them in shared decision-making based on their patient reported outcome (PRO) data.
    • Analysis of PRO data has been demonstrated to be a powerful tool to facilitate communication between patients and clinicians at the initial consultation about the surgery’s likely benefits, leading to more informed patient decisions1.
  • Routinely measure benefit of treatment through the use of validated measures.
    • For most cosmetic surgeries, even a technically proficient procedure cannot be considered a true success to the patient unless they see the benefits post-operatively. However, patients’ assessment of esthetic outcomes can also greatly differ from the clinician’s perspective.2.

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)!
