In a nutshell: Interactive voice response systems can collect data from a wide geographical area very easily and frequently. This study assessed the quality of the data collected from older people participating in a falls prevention programme evaluation in Pennsylvania. IVR was found to be a productive method of collecting data for falls research. Future research needs to establish the level of personal contact required to increase IVR completion rates.
