OBH’s library of outcome measures have been fully developed and validated, either by OBH, or else derived from an existing national source, for use at a local level. These outcomes are measured using local data from different care settings, to produce near real-time, monthly reporting.
Outcomes available are specific to the following locally configurable core population segments, as well as whole population measures. So every individual in the population is accounted for in outcome measurement.
The library contains Clinical and Social Outcome Measures (CSOMs), where existing linked, local data from administrative and clinical systems across multiple care settings, are used.
Where OBH have developed outcome measures, a robust, evidence-based, development process has been undertaken:
- All outcome measures have been built with key stakeholder involvement including patients, carers and health professionals
- Rigorous testing is applied to ensure all measures are technically validated, clinically appropriate and person-centred
- Each outcome has a rationale, numerator and denominator description, detailed further considerations and a data specification
- All measures, when improved, would make a meaningful difference to people’s lives
All outcomes are available with appropriate risk-adjustment and filters for key characteristics such as age, gender, deprivation, and other outcome-specific features. Historical data can be provided for up to the last 5 years.
