Patient-reported outcomes (PROs) assess a person’s experience, feelings, and thoughts about both their condition and its treatment. PROs are able to contribute to a benefit assessment of new medical products by introducing the patients’ subjective evaluation of medical products into the evaluation process. Thus, PROs are also the cornerstone of medical product development for understanding patients’ perceptions on medical products and/or its benefit assessment.
