Free online CE: Planning Outcomes-Based Health Information Programs

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

In the immortal words of Yogi Berra, “You’ve got to be very careful if you don’t know where you’re going because you might not get there.”  Most of us plan trips around a desired destination.  You can also plan projects that way: with the intended results in mind.  This workshop will introduce the logic model, a simple planning tool that emphasizes what you want to accomplish, helping you to focus on the outcomes of your health information programs or services.  A well-constructed logic model pulls together a picture of how resources and planned activities will lead to the results you want to achieve.  Logic models aid decision-making about new projects; assist with structuring evaluations of new and ongoing programs; and contribute to developing funding proposals and reports.
