Tai Chi Prime Data Collection


Program Providers and Facilitators offering MOM in Wisconsin are operating under the WIHA license. As such, providers must follow data collection requirements outlined below. Program Providers must assist Facilitators with distributing materials for data collection, gathering data from participants, and returning materials to WIHA no later than 2 weeks after the last workshop date. 


WIHA relies on Program Providers and Facilitators to advocate and promote the surveys used for data collection. These surveys are important to the success of WIHA and each individual program. The information gathered through data collection is used to 1) Report to current funders to show the work they are funding is reaching participants and is effective; 2) To gather data points to help us apply for future funding to expand the reach of these programs; and 3) To help us negotiate contracts with healthcare insurance companies so that maybe someday, these important evidence-based programs could be covered by health insurance. By completing the surveys, participants are ultimately helping other older adults have access to these important programs. Please help by encouraging participants to complete the surveys.


Please view the below handouts for more information about why we do data collection & tips and tricks to use to encourage participants to complete the surveys:
