Background: Patient reported outcomes (PROs) are increasingly important for evaluation of efficacy and to overcome challenges associated with long-term tolerability, safety and effectiveness.

Materials and methods: A web-based health portal named Virtual Tool for Education, Reporting, Information and Outcomes (VITERIO), was established by a consortium of scientists, medical doctors and a foundation. Data quality standards have been considered and a sound data security concept has been established.

Results: A data set of indicators for health screening and self-monitoring of findings, symptoms, health behaviour, and attitudes has been integrated into VITERIO. These indicators can be expanded and customized for any clinical application or for the use in the general practice. The portal has been designed with two independent access opportunities: from the patient side (PROMI – Patient-Reported Outcomes, Measurement and Information) and from the therapist’s side (PROFI – Provider Reported Outcomes of Findings and Interventions). Mobile tools for monitoring single patients or groups have been integrated. For patient training and health literacy tutorials and instructions that can be downloaded on demand have been deposited.

Here we show exemplarily some implemented graphical solutions and developed tools and give examples for the daily use.

Conclusion: VITERIO can be applied for digital data acquisition and analysis of outcomes and for quality assurance. The comprehensive data collection through VITERIO guarantees data integrity which offers many opportunities for longitudinal assessments. Furthermore, through active participation of the patients, therapies can be tailored to their specific needs. Thereby patients’ adherence and the efficacy of drugs can be enhanced.
