The interRAI HC assessment itself is divided into 20 sections (A through T). Once the assessment data has been collected there are typically five new sets of embedded algorithms which come into play. These algorithms are generally called ‘Applications’ The most important set being the Clinical Assessment Protocols or CAPs. There are currently 25 interRAI HC CAPs which are organized into four groups; Functional Performance, Cognition/Mental Health, Social Life, Clinical Issues.
There are currently 9 outcome measurement scales, a RUG (Resource Utilization Grouper), a MAPLe algorithm (Method for Assigning Priority Levels) and the MiChoice Algorithm. As of the time of writing, there are 25 interRAI HC QIs under development; 23 are risked adjusted and two are summary QI’s.
