The current emphasis on outcomes management and outcomes research projects is stimulating interest in the psychometric properties of computerized clinical data bases among nurses and other health care providers. The knowledge, behavior, and status subscales of the Omaha System's Problem Rating Scale for Outcomes (PRSO) were evaluated for interrater reliability and content validity. The authors describe the methods used and the results of that research.
