It is also an active workgroup with the purpose of improving and standardizing public health practice, documentation, data collection, and outcome reporting.

The OSCOP website is a central location to share our work with each other and with the wider Omaha System community. Some of the things you will find here include:

PH-Doc Offers CCD/C-CDA Document

PH-Doc (Public Health Documentation System) has been sending and receiving Continuity of Care documents with exchange partners since 2012. The outgoing document includes a summary of services provided (using the Encounters Section), medications 'reported', allergies 'reported', diagnoses, Omaha System problems, vitals, smoking status, immunizations, along with Omaha System signs and symptoms and KBS ratings (using the Results Section). Agencies control how many years/months of history is included. Incoming documents can be reconciled and imported into the client/patient chart.
Examples: Family Home Visiting client

Nightingale Notes Offers Continuity of Care Document

Nightingale Notes offers a Continuity of Care Document (CCD) to support the national goal of data exchange at patient transitions of care. This report has emerged as a consensus priority from the national Meaningful Use mandate. The CCD includes data on demographics, medications, problems, conditions, results, and social history. This data is coded using national standards, and the outline format is standardized to make it easy for a health care provider to find information. The problems section contains Omaha System problems with mapping to SNOMED CT, and the results section  includes Omaha System signs/symptoms and KBS ratings. Available in PDF, HTML, XML, and HL7; this human-readable document can also be read computers and incorporated within other software systems. 

Examples:
Family Planning Client CCD
TB Client CCD
