Online Cultural Competency Tool for Local Public Health Agencies

Clearview360, from the John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, has a new tool that assesses the cultural competency of healthcare organizations. It is a multidimensional tool which provides a “360-degree view” from the perspective of healthcare administrators, clinical staff, non-clinical staff, and patients.

The COA360 is an evidence-based, web-based cultural competency tool that evaluates the readiness of a healthcare organization or clinical unit to meet the needs of a rapidly diversifying U.S. population. The COA360 is designed to assess the cultural competency of healthcare organizations, rather than individuals. After the assessment is completed, an auto-generated .pdf report is available immediately. The report provides a score for each CLAS standard as well as the other standards included. Results are reported by race/ethnicity, language, religion/spirituality, and sexual identity.
