We’ve blogged about ePRO form design and the power of real-time calculation previously. Today we invite you to experience both on one of the most thoroughly validated self-reported health instruments of the last 30 years: the SF-12.
Take it for a spin one your smartphone, tablet, or laptop. We’ve paginated this form to minimize the chance of missing any item and all but eliminate scrolling. Scoring algorithms built into the form deliver immediate results. Yet the simplicity and familiarity of the paper form remain.
Instruments like these will only grow in importance, as regulatory bodies and payers continue to call for more real-world evidence. These same stakeholders are also embracing digital: unlike paper, electronic forms capture the date and time of entry (helping to avert “parking lot syndrome“), and can even prompt a participant to revisit skipped items. The result is a dramatic increase in data quality and response rates, along with a concomitant reduction in delays and transcription costs.
Why wait for data, only to discover how compromised it is? Start building your smart, responsive ePRO forms now!
