Abstract

© 2019 Arthroscopy Association of North America Numerous studies have demonstrated favorable psychometric and administrative characteristics of the National Institutes of Health Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System Computer Adaptive Test measures in orthopaedic patient populations. These dynamic assessments require significantly fewer questions than do traditional patient-reported outcome measures, thus requiring less time for survey completion. Their domain-specific nature and standardized scoring make them uniquely suitable for population health assessments. Although some challenges exist in improving adoption of Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System Computer Adaptive Test forms across orthopaedics, there is growing momentum to increase use of these tools across clinical and research orthopaedic applications.
