Overall Adult Health

The ICHOM Standard Set for Overall Adult Health, is the result of hard work by a group of leading physicians, measurement experts, and patient advisors. It represents the outcomes that matter most to adults who have Good health/No disease, Well controlled disease and Poorly controlled disease .
