Evaluation data

Question for Multnomah County programs (or others)- Did you use self-reported ER visit and Hospitalization data or did you have access to EMRs or chart review?  When making the business case did you find that payers wanted to see health records based data or self reported from families was sufficient?  Are there other evaluation measures besides the ones mentioned by Multnomah county that would appeal to payers?

We used ER/Hosp data from the Managed Care Programs initially.  Earlier that showed 2.5 times savings

Recently we have had trouble getting data from the state, so we collected self report data for ER and Hosp,  this all was put in our database.

Then we recently got some recent data from the state.
