Oxford University Innovation’s Clinical Outcomes manages the provision (licensing) and support of high quality clinical outcome assessment (COA) measures developed at the University of Oxford and elsewhere. The vast majority of our measures are Patient Reported Outcome (PRO) Measures (or sometimes referred to as PROMs).
We provide licences for some of the most respected and widely deployed outcome measures used by the pharmaceutical industry, healthcare providers, academia and medical device manufacturers.
Psychometric validation consultancy
The Clinical Outcomes team can also provide expert consultancy advice on the development and psychometric validation of new COAs and PROs, as well as the use of our own and other health outcome measures.
In the USA more than 300,000 rotator cuff repairs are performed annually at a cost of approximately $3bn. The debate over whether arthroscopic or open repair leads to better clinical results continues.
