Title of Collaborative Activity:

Transformation of PROWL Survey into Electronic Form.

Description of Collaborative Activity:

In 2016, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) posted the final version of the Patient-Reported Outcomes with Lasik (PROWL) survey instrument developed in collaboration with the National Eye Institute (NEI) and the Department of Defense (DoD). The survey is intended to collect data to help better understand the potential risk of severe problems that can result from LASIK. The NEI is collaborating with the National Library of Medicine (NLM) to recreate the form in an electronic format to allow for incorporation in electronic data capture systems. The collaboration worked to make the raw data more accessible and deposited in the Biomedical Research Informatics Computing System (Jan 2018).
