Systemic lupus erythematosus: The promise of PROMIS — is it ready for prime time in SLE?

Nature Reviews Rheumatology—June 22, 2017

Nature Reviews Rheumatology featured a study conducted by a team of HSS rheumatologists: Jessica R. Berman, MD; Kyriakos A. Kirou, MD, DSc, FACP; Lisa R. Sammaritano, MD; Lisa A. Mandl, MD, MPH; and Shanthini Kasturi, MD, MS. The study’s objective was to assess the validity of a survey, Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS), given to those with lupus. The survey was used to assess patient-reported outcomes to decrease morbidity and improve quality of life.

According to the article, the team’s study was the first to evaluate the measurement properties of PROMIS in outpatients with lupus. Their study concluded that the survey is well-suited for use at the point of care in lupus because of their favorable performance characteristics and decreased burden on survey responders.
