(EVIDENCE) Checklist

Use the EVIDENCE checklist to ensure quality reporting in studies evaluating the performance of digital measurement products.

Reporting in peer reviewed literature evaluating digital measurement products is highly variable creating low confidence in results and researchers unnecessarily repeating work. To speed the development and deployment of digital measurement products worthy of our trust, the quality of reporting in published literature must improve.

The EVIDENCE checklist promotes high-quality reporting in studies where the primary objective is an evaluation of a digital measurement product or its constituent parts. The EVIDENCE checklist and manuscripts were developed by participants in a DiMe project and were published on May 18, 2021.

This project developed the Evidence Checklist to raise the bar for quality reporting of digital measurement product evaluation in the published literature. It is constructed similarly to existing publication checklists such as PRISMA for systematic reviews and meta-analyses, CONSORT for randomized clinical trials.

The 25-item checklist covers universal requirements for best research practices plus unique considerations for reporting on connected sensor technologies and software. Check out the manuscript published in Digital Biomarkers for further details and examples.
