Scope is one of the largest not-for-profit disability service providers in Australia, supporting thousands of people with intellectual, physical, and multiple disabilities.
Scope and software partner SocialSuite have developed a practical online app called MiSO to measure outcomes in the disability sector.
Recognised for MiSO on the AFR Top 100 Most Innovative Companies list, Scope is proud to demonstrate its innovation and research outcomes at a national level.
Years of research into outcomes measurement, led by Scope’s Dr Stella Koritsas, has enabled the development of an outcomes framework and two surveys designed specifically for use by adults with disability.

By linking this research with innovative technology to ensure that outcomes measurement is embedded in service providers’ day-to-day practice, Scope teamed up with global leader in outcomes measurement software, Socialsuite, to create MiSO.
MiSO – an acronym for Measuring Impact and Service Outcomes – is an online app that enables service providers to measure the impact and outcomes of their services for people with a disability. 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.
A practical tool for any service provider, MiSO:
