Cover of the 2023 Personal Outcome Measures® Data Digest.

CQL | The Council on Quality and Leadership and MediSked have partnered to present data covering personal outcomes and organizational supports – connecting the dots between the quality of services and the quality of life for people with disabilities.

The Personal Outcome Measures® (POM) is a powerful tool to ensure supports and services are truly person-centered. In a POM interview, people receiving services share information about the presence, importance, and achievement of outcomes. Their support providers then discuss the services that the organization has in place for those outcomes. These interviews cover quality of life areas involving choice, health, safety, social capital, relationships, rights, goals, dreams, employment, and more.

The insight gained during a POM interview can then be used to inform a person-centered plan, improve individualized supports, track progress, and assess effectiveness. At an aggregate level, agencies can use this data to analyze initiatives, evaluate organizational priorities, and report results to stakeholders.

This report pulls together POM data that have been collected in 2020 and 2021 through POM interviews with more than 1,500 adults with disabilities. The information gathered during these interviews has been entered into the PORTAL Data System, powered by MediSked. The data digest presents data through an infographic format, organized under various quality of life categories.
