Is a Health Outcome Data Evaluation?
A health outcome data evaluation includes gathering data from existing
databases and analyzing the data. The analysis is conducted to see if
any unusual pattern of a disease is occurring in the community being investigated
as compared to another population (the comparison population) with similar
characteristics. The health assessor can use the results of the analysis
to help identify any specific health condition that may occur more frequently
in people in the community than in people in the comparison population.
