Esteemed ACHNE Colleagues,
I want to thank the 2017 AI planners and all the presenters at this year's conference. I learned a lot of new things, and also revisited familiar topics in a a variety of venues. I also heard many of you talk about the need for being able to "evaluate outcomes of care". Some of you may not know the Omaha System is widely used in population-based care. It is a valid and reliable taxonomy which embeds in the EHR. Some sites without an EHR still use the Omaha System via paper and pen. A bonus, the Omaha System includes a valid and reliable instrument for measuring outcomes of care, e.g., Problem Rating Scale for Outcomes: knowledge, behavior and status. A 5-point Likert scale is used to evaluate a client/community baseline, mid-stream and at the end of a service event. To learn more, there is a plethora of articles discussing the Omaha System and it's provision of outcomes of care. Please go to the website to locate oodles of articles demonstrating outcomes;http://www.omahasystem.org/problemratingscaleforoutcomes.html.
