Measuring quality of care with Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) and Patient Reported Experience Measures (PREMs) is becoming increasingly important. With this study we evaluated ESWL and URS treatments with PROMs/PREMs and gained experience with the execution and implementation of PROMs/PREMs in daily practice. A longitudinal survey study was performed with ESWL and URS urolithiasis patients, using a questionnaire directly (T0-response 69.8%, n = 51) and 10 days after treatment (T1-response 56%, n = 42). Problems on performing daily activities were experienced by 54.2% of ESWL and 61.1% of URS-patients. In the two weeks after treatment 45.8% of the ESWL group and 70.6% of the URS-patients uses pain medication. URS-patients miss more workdays (5.61 versus 1.26 p = 0.025). Patient satisfaction is similar in both groups. With this study we have made a start with PROMs and PREMs for urolithiasis patients. It shows that urolithiasis treatment has influence on patient’s life. More knowledge in this area will improve shared decision making.
