Do You Use Outcome Assessment Questionnaires?
If you haven’t noticed lately, every provider in each discipline is being held accountable for the care they provide to a patient. Why? Because evidence–based treatment approaches are becoming an expected “standard” for proving the effectiveness of care over time, and because tracking outcomes is a means by which insurers decide if the care provided has been necessary.
The Outcome Assessment Page contains, or links to, most of the best-supported OA questionnaires. It also has a collection of articles about the use of OA in the field.
You may find the Outcome Assessment Guidelines Section of interest.
That page is one of many of the useful tools found in the
Clinical Documentation Section.
