«In a new paper published in The Lancet Digital Health along with an associated opinion piece, experts from the University of Birmingham and University Hospitals Birmingham have looked at more than 600 interventional studies on AI health care technologies.»

«While the team found that only 24% of studies have a patient-reported outcome element included in their work, there has been an increase in the number of such studies in recent years, with 2021 and 2022 seeing nearly two-thirds of all studies including patient-reported outcome elements.»

«Dr. Samantha Cruz Rivera from the Centre for patient-reported Outcomes at the University of Birmingham said, «The opportunities for AI to revolutionize health care are only going to make patients’ lives better if those models consider how patients actually feel and respond to health care interventions. Our review shows that patient-reported outcomes, such as measures of symptom burden and quality of life, are increasingly being incorporated into AI studies, which is very encouraging.»
