On April 9th, in downtown New York City, we hosted our third ‘Patient-centered drug development: reflections, challenges & solutions’ workshop entitled: ‘Why we need to move to modern test theory: real world examples’. Once again, our roundtable event gathered a strong group of industry, academic and clinical representatives. Our external invited speakers included Professor Peter Hagell (Kristianstad University, Sweden) and Professor Robert Massof (Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, USA), who spoke about patient centred outcome measurement in Parkinson’s disease and ophthalmology, respectively. This was followed by our own Dr Antoine Regnault who presented our concept-driven measurement approach to mixed methods research.

Following our event, the International Objective Measurement Workshop was held between April 10th and 12th. Modus Outcomes was proud to be a sponsor of this important meeting, and also sole healthcare consultancy present. We had two oral presentations by Stefan and Antoine, on the future of patient-centered outcome measurement. This was a great opportunity for us to network with world-leading experts of measurement science and demonstrate again how cutting-edge the work we do here at Modus Outcomes.
