Purpose of Review: Patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) and patient registries both play important roles in assessing patient outcomes. However, no study has examined the use of PROMs among registries involving patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Our objective is twofold: first, to review the range of PROMs used in registry-based studies of patients with T2DM; second, to describe associations between these PROMs, T2DM and its complications. Recent Findings: The International Consortium for Health Outcomes Measurement (ICHOM) Diabetes Standard Set recommended routine usage of PROMs to assess psychological well-being, diabetes distress, and depression among patients with T2DM. Summary: A wide variety of PROMs were used among the 15 studies included in this review. Quality of life, depressive symptoms and treatment adherence were the most common aspects of T2DM that utilised PROMs for assessment. Adoption of PROMs among registries of patients with T2DM remains uncommon, non-routine and with few that are validated before use.
