Abstract

OUTCOMES RESEARCH ITS SIGNIFICANCE AND MEASUREMENT

K. Prathyusha, K. Dhanavardhan and K. P. R. Chowdary*

ABSTRACT

Outcomes research activities include, comparing the cost /benefit or cost/ effectiveness ratios of different products, programs, and services, examining the impact of new technologies on patients health status(quality of life), and identifying segments of a population at risk for certain disease condition and developing strategies for optimal utilization of healthcare services. Outcomes measurements predict significant benefits, including improved physician and patient information, increased understanding of the effectiveness of different treatment interventions, and established guidelines of medical management. Over the past two decades, creators of outcomes measurement tools have greatly expanded the dimensions that these tools measure. The ultimate goal of outcomes research is to provide insights that lead to greater efficiency and higher quality of care. Today, outcomes are measured through a series of variables obtained in a variety of ways. Functional status, disability assessment, emotional health, social interaction, general health perception, cognitive functions are among the series of variables that are captured and measured for outcomes assessment. Existing outcomes indicators can be categorized as reflecting diseases, patients, providers, or organizations. The most sophisticated, complete, and useful reflection of outcomes will be derived from a balance of indicators representing a variety of outcomes categories. Outcomes research, its significance and measurement methods are discussed in this presentation.

Keywords: Outcomes research, Measurement tools, General health measures.
