An issue confronting many in the health care industry is that symptoms of the normal process of ageing (such as incontinence, falls, infection and confusion) can sometimes be hard to distinguish from the onset of disease, sometimes resulting in late or incorrect diagnosis.
Comprehensive Health Assessment (CHA) looks at the whole-of-life situation of the patient so health care workers are better equipped to provide a full picture of the factors impacting a patient.
CHA focuses on a combination of observation (through watching and listening to a patient) and analysis (understanding a patient's normal state of health and their health goals) to give better meaning to any new information entering the picture and to develop a better tailored health care plan.
