Selecting appropriate outcome measures is essential for the design of scientifically sound studies on medical devices and more. The Medical Device Outcome Measure Database supports researchers to plan and conduct clinical trials and health technology assessments (HTA) of medical devices by providing a comprehensive view of outcome measures. It also enables the use of standard outcome measures between researchers, facilitating the comparison of results and meta-analysis.
The outcome measures are derived from HTAs, systematic reviews, and horizon scans published after 2008, and reflect those commonly used by international institutions involved in HTAs (e.g., International Network of Agencies for Health Technology Assessment, EUnetHTA, Health Technology Assessment International).
Users can filter results by choosing from the following categories:
- Body classification
- Device category
- Type of intervention
- Risk classification
- Device (procedure)
