About the Organziations:
The Praed Foundation
The Praed Foundation is an operating U.S. charitable organization 501.c.3 that maintains the copyrights on a variety of tools that support TCOM (i.e. CANS, ANSA, FAST, etc.). The Praed Foundation’s goal is to ensure the intellectual integrity of these tools will continue to be made accessible to all who share the goal of helping others. The primary work of the Foundation is in support of a mass collaboration of individuals who seek to use evidence-based assessments as an approach to working together to maintain the focus of human service enterprise on the people they seek to help. The conceptual framework for this approach is called Transformational Collaborative Outcomes Management (TCOM). The foundation has supported the development and dissemination of a set of strategies under the TCOM umbrella that support system improvement.
