OBGYN

Patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) effectively monitor the health-related quality-of-life impact of cancer, and also routinely track common oncological symptoms such as physical function, fatigue and depression.
Examples of common obstetrical and gynecology PROMs in OutcomeMD:
ConditionPROM PROM use in literature
Endometriosis
  • Menstrual Symptom Questionnaire (MSQ)
MSQ use
Hysterectomy
  • Uterine Fibroid Symptom and Health-Related Quality of Life Questionnaire (UFQ-QoL) – Hysterectomy
UFS-QoL - Hysterectomy use
Menopause symptoms
  • Menopause-Specific Quality of Life Questionnaire (MENQOL)*
MENQOL use
Polycystic ovarian syndrome
  • Body Image Concern Inventory (BICI)
  • Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale*
BICI useHADS use
Uterine fibroids
  • Uterine Fibroid Symptom and Health-Related Quality of Life Questionnaire (Symptoms Only)
UFS-QoL use
Vaginal infection
  • Vulvovaginal Symptoms Questionnaire (VSQ)
VSQ use
All gynecological conditions including chronic pelvic pain and female sexual function
  • National Institutes of Health (NIH) Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) validated person-centred measures to track all relevant symptoms including:
    • Pain behavior
    • Pain interference
    • Anxiety
    • Depression
    • Sleep disturbance
    • Vaginal discomfort

Additionally, as the technology partner of the International Consortium for Health Outcomes Measurement (ICHOM), OutcomeMD works to respect ICHOM’s recommended PROMs for pregnancy and childbirth when possible.

For gynecological conditions that encompass more than one patient area or domain (menstrual symptoms + pain behavior + 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 Obstetrics and Gynecology:

  • Provide comprehensive and long-term care management
  • Patient reported outcomes (PROs) demonstrated that patients with ovarian cancer do not eventually resume their usual quality of life after conclusion of their treatment, and instead have significant detrimental changes that may be chronic and permanent, with important implications for the need for patient counselling1
  • Identify and engage in best practices to meet patient needs
  • Use of PRO data collection resulted in quality improvement changes at a hospital level, to enhance communication with patients about their procedure and a greater focus on post-operative pain relief following hysterectomy2
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)!

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.
