SCORE Translation Matrix

A key part of reporting outcomes data to the Data Exchange is the Standard Client/Community Outcomes Reporting (SCORE) framework. SCORE is a methodology for standardised reporting of outcomes data across relevant domains. The SCORE framework allows organisations to measure outcomes flexibly, in a consistent and comparable manner using both validated instruments and adapted or developed tools.
