Existing Measures We Use
The Department of Medical Social Sciences at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine is the home of a patient-reported outcome and human function distribution center known as HealthMeasures. HealthMeasures consists of four comprehensive health outcome measurement systems that measure self-reported physical, mental, and social health, including symptoms, wellbeing, physical function, motor performance, dexterity, balance, vision (and visual functioning), olfaction, hearing, taste, affect, social function, and cognitive function, across the lifespan.
Measurement systems we curate include:
- PROMIS® (Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System®)
- Neuro-QoL (Quality of Life in Neurological Disorders)
- ASCQ-Me (Adult Sickle Cell Quality of Life Measurement Information System)
- NIH Toolbox® (NIH Toolbox for Assessment of Neurological and Behavioral Function®), assessing well being and function
