The collection of PRO data using electronic data capture modes of administration is defined as an ePRO. ePRO modes of administration include but are not limited to:
- PC/Laptops (including web-based capture and data collection)
- Mobile Phones /Smartphones
- Telephone – Voice recognition
- Bespoke devices
Compared to paper-based PRO measures, ePROs may lead to less administrative burden, high patient acceptance, higher levels of administrations, avoidance of secondary data entry errors, easier implementation of skip patterns, and more accurate and complete data.
