Patient reported outcomes (PROs) have become widely accepted outcome measures in cystic fibrosis (CF) and other respiratory diseases. The Cystic Fibrosis-Questionnaire-Revised (CFQ-R) is the best validated and most widely used PRO for CF. Data collection can be time-intensive, and electronic platforms would greatly facilitate the feasibility, utility and accuracy of administration of the CFQ-R. Given that the CFQ-R is utilized in virtually all clinical trials worldwide and is increasingly integrated into clinical practice, we developed a software application that will help users to administer, score and save CFQ-R data for all versions. All codes are open access, which will enable other PRO users to design similar applications for other respiratory diseases, such as primary ciliary dyskinesia and non-CF bronchiectasis.
