1. About Merlin™
Merlin™ Outcome Measurement Software runs on any standard personal computer. It includes BOTH version 1 and version 2 of the SF12™ and SF36™. For current studies, use version 1. For new
studies, use version 2. Merlin™ comes complete with master questionnaires that you simply photocopy and hand out to clients. Merlin licensing requires a concurrent license with Quality Metric, the owners of the SF12 and SF36, and is based on the anticipated number of questionnaires over a one-year period. Call us for more information.
We also have available, as an option, the official Spanish translation of the SF36™ questionnaire.This software allows easy entry of SF12™ and SF36™ data. For instance, it only takes 30 seconds to enter an SF36™ questionnaire into Merlin™.Once data is entered, analysis is simply a matter of clicking on buttons.
You can compare patients scores in multiple ways: compare pre- and post- scores on the same graph to see improvement over time; compare individual scores to national norms based upon gender, age group, and diagnosis; and compare individual scores to user-defined variables such as 'treatment' or 'therapist'.Merlin™ also has the ability to create user-defined statements on form printouts if patient scores fall below pre-determined levels. If, for instance, you are using the SF36™ in an orthopedic clinic a low "bodily pain" score might print out the message "consider referral to Pain Management Clinic".
We can mail you additional material, such as sample forms if you wish. If you require additional supportive information, such as recent research using the SF12™ or SF36™, you can call us at 800-964-4789 or 414-964-4789. Our email address is email@example.com.
