Patient reported outcome measures (PROM) are considered a good method of measuring the results of treatment outcomes with the aim of improving the functional, cognitive and mental state of patients and the quality of life during and after treatment. The publication of these results serves the patient's interest in finding the best provider for a treatment. The existing interest of many service providers for the integration of electronic PROM into everyday clinical practice is often faced by barriers due to financial, personnel and technical factors. This must be eliminated in the interest of patient information in order to facilitate the rapid introduction of this patient-centered treatment outcome measurement into as many hospitals and specialist departments as possible.
