Outcomes graph builder - Microsoft Excel 2007 or laterAuthor: Te Pou
Publication date: 28 March 2012
The outcomes graph builder has been designed by Te Pou for clinicians who have limited access to IT tools. It is an Excel file which allows you to enter a service user's outcomes data (HoNOS, HoNOS65+, HoNOSCA, HoNOS-secure, HoNOS-LD or Kessler 10+) into a rating form, to generate a graph which can be shown to the service user or used in a team discussion when reviewing the service user's care. It graphically presents information for up to three time periods, with the ability to store up to 12 individual collections of information.
An information guide is also available for download.
This version has been created to work in Microsoft Excel 2007 or later. It has been revised from the initial version which included the use of macros. The macros have been removed to ensure the tool runs easily on all computers, and avoids the need to make changes to security settings.
For services using earlier versions of Microsoft Excel, a Microsoft Excel 1997-2003 copy of the graph builder is also available.
Note: This outcomes graph builder (excluding the Excel programme) has been developed by Mental Health Programmes Limited (trading as Te Pou), and should not be copied or used for any purpose other than that of implementing HoNOS tools without the express written consent of Te Pou.
There are a few simple steps you need to follow to get started using the outcomes graph builder.
Extra help is available if you need it.
To download one of the files listed in the right hand column, right click on the link and select Save Target As...
Choose the location you would like to save it to, and click Save. When the download is complete, click Close.
- Open the file from the location you saved it to on your computer.
- Easy to follow instructions on how to use the tool are included within the Excel file.
Once you've followed the steps above, you can use the tools as many times as you like.
We suggest you create a new file for each service user. To do so, select Save As from the original file, choose a location to save it to and use the service user's name as the file name.
With service user information, you should ensure the file is saved in a place with the appropriate level of security.
