Clinical Assessment Protocols (CAPs)

CAPs (Clinical Assessment Protocols or Collaborative Action Points) support continuity of care planning by providing common protocols across settings. A unique automated feature of interRAI systems, CAPs are based on systematic reviews of international literature and our large data holdings. CAPs are not intended to automate care planning; rather, they are designed to engage the person and clinicians in a dialogue to support collaborative decision-making.

CAP structure

  • Problem descriptions
  • Overall goals of care
  • Triggers to facilitate improvement / prevent decline
