Semi-quantitative Scoring Metric

Specific outcome-intervention pairs are scored for (i) severity of the outcome; (ii) likelihood of the disease; (iii) effectiveness of the intervention; and (iv) nature of the intervention in terms of burden and risk to the patient. The Semi-Quantiative Metric used by the ClinGen Actionability group is based on a similar metric developed for the NCGENES project.
