IOMC 2019 is the sixth meeting of the International Outcome Measurement Conference, which has been held 5 times since 1996 and has been an important international event for researchers and health care practitioners who utilize the Rasch Model. Attendance at previous IOMCs has ranged from 50 to 90, from over 12 countries, and 10 rehabilitation/health care disciplines. The goal of IOMC has always been to Promote sound measurement practices in outcome measurement. The conference was founded in 1996 under the sponsorship of Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital. Marianjoy also sponsored the second IOMC in 1998. The third IOMC was sponsored by the University of Illinois Chicago in 2001. After a 14-year hiatus, IOMC 2015 was co-sponsored by the Journal of Applied Measurement and MetaMetrics. IOMC 2017 was a joint-effort with the Shirly Ryan AbilityLab and the Journal of Applied Measurement. IOMC 2019 again is a joint-effort with the Shirly Ryan AbilityLab and the Journal of Applied Measurement. Because many members of ACRM MNG also historically attend IOMC, aligning the two conferences maximizes reach and impact of the two organizations.
