Computerized adaptive testing is a strategy whereby questions are presented to a patient based on responses already received, rather than asked in a fixed order. By always selecting the most informative question it is usually possible to obtain an accurate score with fewer questions. OBERD’s methods, based on predictive modeling, differ from those employed by the MCAT test or most other adaptive systems in their ability to by produce CAT versions of existing forms. ASES CAT produces scores that are fully interchangeable with standard ASES, with a 40% saving in patient effort and full compatibility with existing ASES data.

The ASES Shoulder Score is one of the first and most important Patient Reported Outcomes Measures to be enabled in OBERD. Use has grown steadily, as shown in the graph. The total number of ASES scores collected since 2012 now exceeds 140,000, enough for obtaining a number of normative statistics. A preview from our soon-to-be-released compilation: (1) Shoulder surgeons average about 300 appointments per month, about 12% of which are surgeries; (2) 56.8% of patients have clinically significant improvement at six months, while 7.2% are clinically worse; (3) Variation by gender and age is often surprisingly small.Contact For any interest in non-commercial use, contact Oberd for further details.
OBERD’s Registry module accommodates a rich data set from multiple sources, providing a complete picture of patients’ demographics, health history, episode of care, outcomes, satisfaction, education module audit, and costs associated with their care. Simple to administer and manage, the Registry allows you to build and conduct as many studies as you wish, using an infinite range of filter combinations. Establishing data collection points along timelines, using validated forms drawn from the extensive OBERD library, or customized forms to meet your institution’s specific needs, our Registry yields rich data sets for retrospective mining to support your research needs.Request Demo
