Scope’s research earns recognition on AFR Most Innovative Companies List
Scope is honoured to be announced as one of Australia and New Zealand’s Most Innovative Companies. Scope was named on the Australian Financial Review’s prestigious annual Top 100 list yesterday, gaining recognition for a new outcomes measurement tool called MiSO.
MiSO – an acronym for Measuring Impact and Service Outcomes – is an online app developed by Scope’s research team that enables service providers to measure the impact and outcomes of their services for people with a disability.
The ground-breaking new tool was launched this year following a decade of research on outcomes measurement in the disability sector, led by Scope’s Manager of Strategic Research, Dr Stella Koritsas.
Scope CEO Dr Jennifer Fitzgerald says achieving a place on the Most Innovative Companies list is a welcome acknowledgement for MiSO and reinforces Scope’s position as an industry leader.
“It’s great to see Scope’s research and development being recognised and we are proud to be seen as a pioneer within the disability sector and more broadly. Innovation has always been important to Scope and continues to be crucial in delivering on our mission and vision.
“Scope’s vision is to enable better outcomes for people with disability, and we’re always asking the simple question – how can we do things better? We’ve been innovating throughout our 708 year history and will continue to transform and reinvent the way we deliver services to our customers into the future.”
Delivered in partnership with technology platform Socialsuite, MiSO collects, compiles and analyses outcomes data in one single, easy-to-access location. The app allows service providers to measure outcomes, track performance against goals, use the data captured to inform service delivery and improvement, and provide evidence of outcomes to customers and funding bodies, such as the National Disability Insurance Agency.
“Scope is operating in a rapidly changing environment, particularly with the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme,” says Dr Fitzgerald. “MiSO provides a solution to a need that has never been greater”.
MiSO is available to service providers wanting to measure the impact and outcome of their services on people with a disability. MiSO is the solution to accessing and measuring impact on customers. Providers who are interested can find more information on Scope’s website.
The Australian Financial Review Most Innovative Companies list is now in its seventh year. Organisations are evaluated based on their nominated new product or service, the quality of their overall innovation program and through a survey of their employees. The list ranks the most innovative organisations in Australia and New Zealand, and is the only national, cross industry list of its kind.
