Best & Promising Practices

Commissioned Corps Officer

The IHS database, Online Search, Consultation and Reporting (OSCAR) System, is an inventory of Best (i.e., Evidence-Based) Practices, Promising Practices, Local Effort (BP/PP/LE), Resources, and Policies occurring among American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities, schools, work sites, health centers/clinics, and hospitals. The purpose of this inventory is to:

  • Assist our AI/AN communities with getting the information and health services they need;
  • Improve informed consultation with Tribal and Urban programs by facilitating transparency in Indian Health Service (IHS) and IHS supported activities; and,
  • Highlight the great work that occurs in the field.
