National Clinical Outcomes Summary

The National Clinical Outcomes Summary report compares your company’s performance against the national average for the five risk-adjusted OMTs. These include QuickDASH (Disability of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand), Lower Extremity Functional Scale (LEFS), Oswestry (ODI), Neck Disability Index (NDI), and Dizziness Handicap Inventory (DHI).

    National Clinical Outcomes Summary Field Descriptions 

    This report compares the average scores from surveys completed at initial evaluation and discharge (Completion of Care). It also shows the difference between those averages and the percent change.

    Note: A complete data set is comprised of a completed outcomes survey on the Initial Evaluation and Discharge Summary. However, if the case has a Progress Note with a completed outcomes survey and the patient was Quick Discharged, the system will convert the Progress Note Survey to a Discharge survey. This ensures a complete data set for patients who self-discharge or are otherwise unable to complete their course of care.   

    Outcome Measurement Tool Table

    Initial: This is the average score achieved in all OMTs captured at Initial Examination for complete data sets (as seen above).
    Completion of Care: This is the average score achieved for all OMTs captured at Discharge.
    Difference: This calculates the change in score between the Initial and Completion of Care.
    % Change: Calculated by dividing the Difference by Initial.

    Minimum Clinically Important Differences (MCID) Graph

    This graph shows the average change in score reported by patients at initial evaluation and discharge for each test (blue outline). It gives a side-by-side comparison on where your clinic lies on a national scale (gray).
    Minimum Clinically Important Difference (MCID): The minimum difference needed to show improvement in patients. This value involves a patient-reported minimal amount of change that is significant enough to represent a functional improvement.
