Applications of HealthMeasures

HealthMeasures can be used:

  • In clinical, observational, comparative effectiveness, health services, and health policy research
  • In primary care and specialist healthcare settings to monitor symptoms and function over time
  • In evaluating the quality of care provided by a healthcare provider, clinic, or healthcare system (i.e., patient-reported outcome performance measures)
  • In educational assessment, including evaluating cognitive and emotional function, special education services, and screening for sensory function in students

In all applications, consideration is needed to select the right measure and data collection system for your purpose.
