Claire Frances Snyder, PhD, MHS, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, highlights the benefits of using patient-reported outcomes (PROs) in clinical practice, especially for vulnerable patients, such as those from minority backgrounds, or those who are not technologically literate. If further studies corroborate these findings, this will allow for the narrowing of technological divides. This will require the implementation of PRO interventions in accordance to patient preferences and needs. Resources that can aid in this process include the PROTEUS guide to implementing patient reported outcomes in clinical practice, which are valuable in investigating if PROs can address issues in health equity. This interview took place at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) 2023 Annual Congress in Chicago, IL.
