Outcome based care systems help coordinate the gathering of nursing assessment, reassessment and discharge activities with common measurements including HOBIC and other industry standards.
HOBIC is the acronym for Health Outcomes for Better Information and Care, an initiative of the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care in Canada. Similar to the standards defined and utilized in the US around OASIS the objective of HOBIC is to introduce a short set of standardized measures of patient status into nurses’ admission and discharge assessments. The assessment data when gathered in a common way and shared across the care team helps provide the data necessary to adjust care programs and plan for the best care possible in the future. Healthcare will continue to improve across North America by utilizing outcome based care solutions.
