A Functioning and Related Health Outcomes Module : the development of a data capture tool for health and community services information systems

Sykes, Catherine,

Online Resources

2006

This report describes work that set out to explore the value of a module of information on functional status as a health outcome measure and to develop a framework for the development of such a module. The project has been supported by the Australian Health Ministers’ Advisory Council (AHMAC) through its National Health Information Group. This report recommends a module or framework of summary information—the Functioning and Related Health Outcomes Module (FRHOM)— that:

• can be used to describe health status, outcomes of health interventions, and the need for assistance in areas of human functioning, and

• enables the efficient and effective capture, storage and transmission of data on

human functioning in a wide range of human service systems.
