Abstract

As a new era of healthcare advocates a more valuable and intelligent approach to care management and delivery based on values and outcomes, shifts toward risk management to boost performance should be considered that encompass the capitalization of health assets or health strengths. To make full use of individuals' or populations' health assets, data capture and representation are needed. This paper uses a strengths-oriented case study mapped to an inter-disciplinary standardized terminology, the Omaha System, to illustrate and compare the conventional problem-based approach to care management with the strengths-oriented approach to care that demonstrates whole-person data capture of an individual's health and health assets leveraged to promote health values and performance. The Omaha system provides a standardized framework to organize the concepts of all of health from a whole-person perspective for documentation to enable data analysis, interoperability, and health information exchange.
