CareLogic IMPACT Outcomes Tool & the DLA-20
Prove Your Mission: CareLogic IMPACT Outcomes Tool & the DLA-20™” Webinar
The ability to measure and track clinical improvements is a requirement of healthcare reform and value-based payment models and a best practice for behavioral health and human services organizations.
And, the only way to really know how well your clinicians and your agency are performing against your goals is with a comprehensive needs and outcomes management tool. One that integrates standardized instruments directly into the clinical workflow and provides real-time feedback to clinicians and clients.
This webinar was co-presented by Qualifacts’ own Christy Winter, Manager of Clinical Informatics and Outcomes and Willa Presmanes, a Consulstant at MTM Services and more importantly the creater of the DLA-20™. The webinar shows you how well-designed integrated databases incorporating the DLA-20™ provide a trustworthy, HIPAA-protected and time-sensitive system for inter-disciplinary communication.

- The importance of tracking outcomes as part of a mission-driven organization
- How integrating the DLA-20™ into electronic processes makes the information more accessible
