2019 American College of Rheumatology recommended patient-reported functional status assessment measures in rheumatoid arthritis.
This study’s objective was to develop American College of Rheumatology (ACR) Functional Status Assessment Measures (FSAMs) for patient reporting in most clinic settings. The authors convened a workgroup to conduct a systematic literature review through March 2017. They focused on the following FSAMs: the Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ) and derived measures from the Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) tool. Out of 11,835 articles identified in the search, 56 were included in the review. A modified Delphi process identified 7 measures which fulfilled the minimum standard for regular use, and 3 measures were recommended: the PROMIS 10-item short form, the HAQ-II, and the Multidimensional HAQ.
