the IAOMT On-Line Symptom Survey

Use the IAOMT Symptom Survey on-line for your clinical research and for tracking the progress of individual patients!

Patients responding  to the on-line version can see the results immediately, and can e-mail the results to  themselves and to their referring doctor. The e-mailed results will be in the form of both an html page, and in a csv file, which can be imported into a spreadsheet for record keeping and research database.

The IAOMT Symptom Survey is a review of systems that was originally written by Dr. Blanche Grube, and published in the BioProbe in 1993. It grades 124 symptoms and diseases on a scale from 0 to 3. It is scored by simply adding up the choices made by the subject. The higher the score, the worse the subject feels. In clinical testing, the scores of the SF-36 and the IAOMT Symptom Survey correlate closely.

Another useful health and well-being assay that is often used in clinical research:

The SF-36 test of self-perceived well being was developed by the RAND Corporation, and is used under universal permission, as long as proper attribution is made. It is scored by a normative algorithm, such that a score of 50 equals the population mean of the millions of tests administered. Plus or minus 10 is equal to plus or minus one standard deviation. The test must be transcribed and scored at the website: http://www.sf-36.org/demos/SF-36.html

Two results are given, a Physical Composite Score, and a Mental Composite Score. The higher the score, the better the subject feels.
