Following the credo that ‘feedback improves performance’, Health-Factors launches the new and enhanced MyOutcomes Version 10.0
KELOWNA, B.C., CANADA (March 31, 2012) â€“ Therapists and their clients can now benefit from the most advanced tool ever created for measuring progress in therapy and the client’s impression of the treatment process with the release of MyOutcomes version 10.0.
This latest version of the clinically proven, Web-based therapist tool features advanced reporting, translated versions of the Outcome Rating Scale (ORS) and Session Rating Scales (SRS), and improved security and data export capabilities. A complete guide to version 10.0 (including exclusive bonus offers) can be downloaded for free by visiting www.myoutcomes.com.
“As an organization, we know firsthand how feedback improves performance,” says Cindy Hansen, Research and Development Director, pointing to independent studies that show the use of feedback tools such as MyOutcomes help improve the effectiveness of therapy by as much as 200 percent.
“By following our own credo and reaching out to our clients for feedback, we’ve been able to create a product that’s more powerful, efficient and responsive to the needs of today while still remaining reliable and easy to use.”
MyOutcomes advanced reporting analyzes session-by-session responses and maps them graphically over time against age-adjusted norms, reporting actual versus expected improvements. (watch our short demo video) Case alerts now identify in real time clients at heightened risk for service failure along with clients who have achieved service targets and may be ready to graduate from care.
Nine translations of the ORS and SRS as well as the Child Outcome Rating Scale (CORS) and Child Session Rating Scale (CSRS) are now available to MyOutcomes clients. Clinicians can switch languages on a client-by-client basis or set the language of their preference as the default. Options include Bulgarian, Danish, English, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Spanish and Swedish.
Integration of electronic health record applications is streamlined via web services over SSL, while all aggregate data is automatically de-identified to protect private health information and housed in a data center with SAS-70 Type II Certification. An automatic logout feature, comprehensive audit trails, physical protection of the MyOutcomes server, an enterprise-class firewall and 256-bit encryption of all transferred data serve to further ensure data security.
“We’re confident we have the best possible product in terms of ease of use, quality of outcomes information, and security,” Hansen says. “We look forward to continuing to listen closely to the therapists who use MyOutcomes so we can keep helping them help others.”
First launched in 2008, MyOutcomes has developed an international reputation as the most user-friendly tool for administering, scoring, and interpreting the ORS and SRS, with hundreds of clients around the world in the public, private, and non-profit sectors.
