Measure the Impact of Migraines & Headaches
Tension headaches and migraines are two of the most common neurological diseases, yet many patients with these conditions are underdiagnosed and undertreated. Chronic headaches and migraines are known to negatively affect productivity, work performance, relationships, leisure time and many other aspects of a patient’s life. The Headache Impact Test HIT-6 offers valuable insights regarding the impact that headaches and headache treatments have on patients’ functional health and well-being. In six questions, it gathers patient-reported information related to their pain, social functioning, role functioning, cognitive functioning, vitality and psychological stress.
Meaningful Scoring & Survey Applications
For clinical purposes, the HIT-6™ provides a validated screening cut point score for migraine headaches and several cut point scores to stratify individuals by the severity of headache impact. With HIT-6 scoring, healthcare professionals can also utilize clinically meaningful thresholds of score changes to evaluate headache impact improvement or deterioration. Users can more easily monitor the day-to-day effects of headaches, identify appropriate care measures, track the trajectory of headache impact and determine the effectiveness headache treatments. Data from this headache assessment quiz is particularly vital for patients who have been underdiagnosed and undertreated for debilitating headaches in the past.
