Abstract

Researchers are developing methods to evaluate health care quality and effectiveness using health informatics data sets. Standardized taxonomies such as the Omaha System are being used in computerized documentation systems to generate data on client assessments and health care services. Questions such as prevalence of client problems, care utilization, differential intervention effectiveness, and problem-specific client outcomes can be investigated. Approaches for analyzing Omaha System data are emerging in the literature and in practice settings, and will be described in this poster.
