The Omaha System Partnership for Knowledge Discovery and Health Care Quality
The Omaha System Partnership for Knowledge Discovery and Health Care Quality is a new initiative within the University of Minnesota School of Nursing.
The partnership has 3 components:
- multidisciplinary scientific teams of researchers with experience in advanced data analysis and data mining techniques
- a group of affiliate members from many countries who contribute clinical Omaha System data, suggest important clinical questions, and work together with the scientific team on research and evaluation projects
- a warehouse of de-identified clinical Omaha System data including client problems, signs/symptoms, interventions, and knowledge, behavior, and status outcomes
Examples of current data projects include:
- Evaluation of family home visiting effectiveness for mothers with intellectual disabilities
- Benchmarking family home visiting outcomes across jurisdictions
- Inter-rater reliability of public health nurse outcome ratings
- Linking intervention approaches to client outcomes for elderly home care patients and for family home visiting clients
The Omaha System Partnership Data Warehouse is now accepting de-identified clinical Omaha System data including client problems, signs/symptoms, interventions, knowledge, behavior, and status outcomes, and client demographic information. Please contact Karen Monsen, Director, for more information.
