PROMIS Research Sites
The PROMIS initiative is carried out by a network of NIH–funded primary research
sites and coordinating centers working collaboratively to develop a series of dynamic
tools to reliably and validly measure patient–reported outcomes (PROs).
Primary research sites are responsible for:
- completing independent research project(s)
- developing and shaping the PROMIS® item banks in cooperation with other PROMIS research sites and coordinating centers
- collecting data and conducting analyses to support the validity of PROMIS instruments
The PROMIS® Network includes twelve primary research sites from across
The PRSs and Centers work closely with NIH project scientists representing several
NIH Institutes and Centers. They also serve as the scientific liaison with NIH program
staff and between the PROMIS® Network and other NIH–sponsored research
collaborations. PROMIS® Science Officers offer technical assistance,
advice, and coordination.
