Patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) are the tools that can be used to capture how patients feel and how well they’re doing in a more structured and standardised manner. These could be something like questionnaires with a standard list of questions or rating scales.

The answers you give are then turned into numbers or scores that can be compared and analysed. These scores help your healthcare team, yourself, or researchers track changes in your health over time, and can also be used to measure the effect of certain treatments or therapies.
