Background: International Dermatology Outcome Measures (IDEOM) is a non-profit organization founded in 2013. It is composed of researchers and stakeholders who work to develop evidenced-based outcome measures to enhance research and treatment recommendations of dermatologic diseases. Summary: The 2021 IDEOM Virtual Annual Meeting occurred from November 19-20, 2021. Contributions were made by leaders and stakeholders from the psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, pediatric hidradenitis suppurativa, acne, vitiligo, actinic keratosis, alopecia areata, itch, and cutaneous lymphoma workgroups. The psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, and actinic keratosis workgroups provided an overview of their respective instruments for treatment satisfaction and symptom measurement. The inaugural meetings of the itch, alopecia areata, and cutaneous lymphoma workgroups identified unmet needs of their respective diseases and future goals. The acne, vitiligo, and pediatric hidradenitis suppurativa workgroups discussed concerns of quality of life, instruments for symptom measurement, and screening tools. Additionally, a representative from the US Food and Drug Administration was in attendance and presented an update on topical drugs and generics. This report provides a summary of workgroup updates from the past year and future directions established during the meeting. Key messages: This report summarizes progress made by each IDEOM workgroup at the 2021 IDEOM Virtual Annual Meeting.
