95% response rate is possible

We always get a lot of questions about when and how to send surveys (i.e., survey timing post-discharge, email vs SMS), which questions to use (i.e., general, or condition-specific validated question sets) and what they should look like to be mobile and patient-friendly. But above all else, the questions we seem to get the most are always: “What ...

How new technology applied to PROMs enables value-based funding mechanisms like never before

How do PREMs and PROMs work together?

Gender and Ethnicity

So, I recently had one of my worst fears realised: someone called a survey of mine racist. Now for any survey creator or anyone whose work is shared publicly, in terms of social crimes, when you're criticised of offending or excluding members of society, it doesn't get much worse than that.

Making PROMs easy for clinicians, and your patients

How can tracking symptoms and outcomes better support people living with long-term conditions?

Healthcare professionals are always looking for effective and safe ways to improve the level of care, comfort and wellbeing of their patients. Whether it’s the most leading-edge gene therapy or hospital beds with a wireless network of sensors designed to reduce decubitus ulcers (bed sores), we all want to find ways to incrementally improve the quality and success ...
