PRO tip.

Why the current emphasis on patient-reported outcomes (PRO)? Because (1) physicians aren’t that hot at gauging them and (2) they are, after all, the clinical outcomes that matter most. In line with what’s been demonstrated time and time again, this prospective study of 777 patients receiving adjuvant breast radiation reveals clinician toxicity grading significantly under-captured all skin symptom assessment items as graded by patients. With patient satisfaction scores becoming a growing component of payment models, now wouldn’t be a bad time to invest in an app for real-time PRO tracking. | Behroozian, Radiother Oncol 2021
