Clinician-reported outcome (ClinRO)

/klɪˈnɪʃən-rɪˈpɔːtɪd ˈaʊtkʌm (klin r ō)/

A measurement based on a report that comes from a trained healthcare professional after observation of a patient’s health condition. Most ClinRO measures involve a clinical judgment or interpretation of the observable signs, behaviors, or other manifestations related to a disease or condition. ClinRO measures cannot directly assess symptoms that are known only to the patient (e.g., pain intensity).
