For urology conditions that encompass more than one patient area or domain (pelvic floor dysfunction + pain intensity + 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 Urology:
  • Facilitate outcome-based decision-making by providing your patients with more detailed, tailored information about treatment effects.
    • Patient reported outcome (PRO) data has been shown to help urologists communicate with their patients about the benefits, risks and expectations associated with treatments, beyond conventional endpoints, to symptom burden and impact on quality of life1.
    • In a study where PRO measures (PROMs) were administered to patients after various treatments for prostate cancer, the results indicated that physical and psychological symptoms were associated with treatment regret;2 PRO data can aid with helping patients to understand what their individualized outcomes may be with surgery, and improve the probability of satisfaction.

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)!
