Abstract
This paper evaluates the value of using a mobile digital technology for the purpose of collecting Patient-Reported Outcome (PRO) data. We compare the use of a paper-based questionnaire and a mobile application as two different PRO instruments. Based on analysis, we conclude that use of the mobile application allows for a more nuanced picture of patients' health to be established. Implications for diagnosis and medical treatment are discussed along with the need for future research.
