Landmark Articles Published by QualityMetric Scientists Report Improvements in Short Form Health Status Measures and Establish Criteria for Future Development

article in the QualityMetric series also appears in the January JCE issue. Evaluation of a Preliminary Physical Function Item Bank Supports the Expected Advantages of the Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS), details development of an item bank that builds on advancements made by QualityMetric over six years ago.

"We are gratified that these early efforts have supported PROMIS and to be a part of this very esteemed collaboration."

QualityMetric's efforts to support the PROMIS initiative are complemented by the company's expansive scientific research and innovation agenda, which includes development of CAT measurement systems for all of the eight domains of health as measured by the SF-36v2 and for disease-specific impact for adults with asthma, diabetes, obesity and coronary disease. The company is also developing CAT systems for children to include both generic and disease- specific outcomes measurement. QualityMetric's CAT systems are referred to as dynamic health assessments (DYNHA(R)) and offer increased precision, most notably at the patient level, while achieving substantial reductions in respon
