If you work at a behavioral health and human services organization, you likely collect a wide variety of client data throughout the treatment process. Having that information on hand is important, but are you actually putting that data to work?
Simply measuring and monitoring outcomes isn’t enough. By using that information to help inform and optimize your treatment process, your organization can:
- Improve client outcomes
- Help your clients make progress towards their individual goals and objectives
- Improve quality of care by maximizing effective interventions
- Support the Golden Thread (a behavioral healthcare best practice of consistently and accurately aligning clinical information throughout the care continuum and related documentation)
- Profoundly improve the quality of care, drive efficiencies and demonstrate performance
- Understand your clinical outcomes in preparation for value-based care
Upon completion of this webinar, attendees will be able to:
- Explain how to use assessment instrument information to help inform treatment plan creation and management
- Identify real world strategies you can leverage to optimize service delivery
- Understand best practices for integrating outcomes information within the treatment process
