Outcomes Guidelines Report Volume 5—User Agreement
The Outcomes Guidelines Report Volume 5, available as a free downloadable PDF, represents the latest product of a research initiative launched in 2006 to bring consensus, transparency and sound science to measuring clinical and financial outcomes in wellness and care management. It refines earlier work and adds new guidance on more broadly defined population health management programs.
The new guidelines introduce a framework for health information technology, defining key components necessary for a fully connected population health management program. Volume 5 also introduces a checklist and flowchart to determine whether a program should be evaluated as a wellness, population health or disease management program.
Volume 5 incorporates all guidance from earlier volumes and provides a "Guidelines Locator" to quickly reference specific recommendations. In other new content, the newest guidelines include a conceptual framework and process framework for population health management, updated recommendations on the criteria used to select participants for chronic condition management programs and proposed organizational best practices for promoting medication adherence.
