PORTAL provides agencies and systems with reporting options to better understand and analyze outcomes data collected through CQL's Personal Outcome Measures®. Data can be analyzed at the individual, organizational or national level to evaluate the presence of outcomes and the supports that are provided. This data can then be dissected across hundreds of different data elements, such as diagnoses, residential setting, race, gender, geographical location, decision-making authority, age and more.
Subscribers to PORTAL can also access a multitude of reporting options, including various online dashboards, along with the ability to export into formats like Excel, PDF, etc. These reports and analytics can be useful in informing someone's person-centered plan, directing organizational strategic planning, identifying pockets of success, identifying areas of improvement, influencing board of director meetings and demonstrating outcomes to other stakeholders like families, colleagues and donors.
