Lawson, A. (2015). Analytics for Improving Patient Outcome by Utilising Comprehensive IoRN Assessment Scoring Metrics. In: (Ed.) BCS Health Informatics Scotland (HIS), , () ( ed.). (pp. ). Edinburgh: . BCS.
This paper outlines a method of analysing the outcomes for care using evaluation metrics based on the IoRN assessment method.
