About Us

We set the standard for PROs and COAs.

QualityMetric has spent more than three decades standardizing functional health status assessments with patients, clinicians, caregivers and health care professionals in mind. We use proprietary methodologies to capture, benchmark, and interpret health outcomes data.

From our wide variety of scientifically validated general health and disease specific surveys, to expert analysis provided by our Consulting Division, we deliver all-inclusive, turn-key outcomes measurement solutions, as well as customized products and services. We are recognized leaders in Patient-Reported Outcome (PRO) and Clinical Outcomes Assessment (COA) measurement solutions, working with the top healthcare and life science companies to better understand functional health and well-being.

Why QualityMetric?

Scientifically Validated PRO
& COA Surveys
QualityMetric’s scientifically valid assessments of health from the patient’s perspective are linguistically validated and available in 2,000+ languages across multiple modes of administration. Our standardized surveys offer norm-based comparisons and benchmarking against 100+ conditions. Our surveys are cited in over 40,000 peer-reviewed articles and have been FDA accepted for use in label claims.
Benchmark & Data Assets
While QualityMetric is widely known as the developer of the SF-36® Health Survey and other patient-reported outcome (PRO) assessments, our true value resides with the interpretation from our general population norms and condition-specific benchmarks for 100+ conditions built into our eCOA platform. This data is invaluable because it provides the context necessary for survey results to lead to scientifically valid and actionable information, which is the key to effective decision-making.
eCOA Technology
An advanced patient-centered eCOA platform, with an interactive dashboard interface that delivers real-time, patient-centered evidence. Our eCOA platform is FDA 21 CFR part 11 and HIPAA compliant.
Consulting Services
Comprised of multi-disciplinary scientists, researchers, and health experts with over 24 years of experience, our team represents a broad combination of disciplines. We employ our advanced methodologic skills and substantive knowledge across more than 60 therapeutic areas.
Translation Services
Our U.S. based linguists and in-country translators deliver cross-cultural adaptations and linguistically validated translations of all types of clinical and scientific content.

Our history as the authority on patient perspectives.

1997
Today
QualityMetric was founded in an effort to amplify the patient’s voice in clinical research and patient-reported measurement. We introduced the SF™ Health Surveys as the industry’s most reliable way of capturing and validating patient-reported data. The SF surveys soon became the universally accepted standard for measuring functional health status from the patient’s perspective.
After 24 years, we are a stand-alone entity and continually expanding our work to help life science and healthcare organizations quantify, qualify and advance their medical efforts.
