NOMS AUDIOLOGY DATA COLLECTION SYSTEM
Introducing the NOMS Audiology
Data Collection System
If I were to ask my fellow audiologists
why they chose this career, I have a
good idea what they would say... " to
maximize the communication
abilities of people with hearing
loss and help them reach their full
potential personally, academically,
professionally, and within their
relationships. " But how do we ensure
that we are helping our patients reach
their goals? How do we constantly
refine our craft to enhance the services
we provide and demonstrate the value
of our care to others-patients, other
health care providers, administrators,
and policymakers?
Beyond validation and verification,
we need to use our patient data to
track outcomes and monitor progress
before and after audiological
intervention. And, with the introduction
of ASHA's National Outcomes
Measurement System (NOMS) for
audiology, this is easier than ever!
NOMS is a data collection and
reporting registry (and a free ASHA
member benefit) that benchmarks
the outcomes of adults receiving
audiological services for hearing,
tinnitus, and/or balance. Once
registered, you enter data for adult
patients into the NOMS web-based
application after key milestone
appointments. Using both patientreported
outcomes and clinically
administered assessments, NOMS
captures clinical improvements
following audiological intervention
and care. Keeping up with your data
is easy in that upon logging in, the
main dashboard displays high-level
information and data snapshots.
For more in-depth analyses, NOMS
features a reporting tool where you
can generate on-demand reports
of your organization benchmarked
against the national average.
NOMS can be utilized in a variety of
settings-including audiology private
practice, hospital/ENT practice, and
university clinics. The customizable
reports allow you to analyze your data
according to your needs and provide
opportunities to improve service
delivery and practice management.
Additionally, NOMS can serve as a
teaching tool for graduate students,
audiology assistants, or patient care
coordinators on your team.
We all want to make a difference
in the lives of our patients, and
NOMS helps us document that we
are achieving that goal. Identifying
areas of clinical improvement and
demonstrating the value of your
services has never been more in your
control. Do it for you, do it for your
practice, do it for your patients. Do it to
make a difference. Incorporate NOMS
into your practice today.
