The four paired measures described in the research letter include process and outcome pruritus measures for dermatitis and process and outcome pruritus measures for psoriasis. The process measures calculate rates of patient-reported outcome tool administration among patients. The outcome measures determines whether those with more severe pruritus (itch) are improving.
