This review describes the development, advantages and disadvantages, and applications of the Patient-Reported Outcome Measurement Information System (PROMIS) in orthopaedic trauma. PROMIS is a useful tool for quantifying outcomes in orthopedic trauma. It allows measurement of outcomes across multiple domains while minimizing administration time. PROMIS also reliably identifies clinical, social, and psychological risk factors for poor outcomes across a variety of orthopaedic injuries and disease states. However, PROMIS lacks specificity for certain anatomic regions and validation for mental health outcomes. It also is limited by ceiling effects in certain active patient populations. Orthopaedic traumatologists should be familiar with PROMIS, as its use is increasing and it is a valuable tool that can aid in clinical decision making.
Key words: PROMIS / Trauma / Patient-reported outcomes / Computer-adaptive testing
