HealthMeasures are currently available in many data collection tools.
REDCap is a secure web application for building and managing online surveys and databases. It is a great solution for research and clinical data collection as it supports multiple types of data, can utilize a study calendar, and calculates descriptive statistics.
The REDCap Library uses the Assessment CenterSM API and therefore includes most self- and proxy-report HealthMeasures including PROMIS®, ASCQ-Me®,and Neuro-QoL™ CATs. Scores are automatically calculated. Within the library:
- “Adaptive Instrument” is a computer adaptive test.
- “Auto-scoring” means the measure is a short form and a total score will be calculated.
- You can use REDCap for data collection of custom PROMIS, Neuro-QoL, and ASCQ-Me short forms and have those measures scored with the HealthMeasures Scoring Service by following these instructions>>
REDCap is developed by Vanderbilt University and is available at over 3,200 institutions. The REDCap Library, which houses HealthMeasures, is hosted at Vanderbilt.
