Description

Behavioral health is undergoing a significant change with a focus on measurement-based care which can assist in better delivering treatments. Community behavioral health practices can apply screening and follow-up plans with treatment targets and then use validated measurement tools, assess treatment response, and adjust treatment according to outcomes. Commonly used tools include the PHQ9 for depression and GAD7 for anxiety and in these settings it will be important to look beyond these tools. Measurement must be applied in a systematic fashion by the care team requiring re-thinking workflows. Data is entered into the registry for tracking and treatment is adjusted to reach preset clinical targets. Advancing this approach in community behavioral health settings is a central tool for enhancing and informing approaches to population health and improving and positioning the field for value-based payment initiatives. This presentation reviews measurement-based care approaches for behavioral and physical health in the SMI population as well as reviews examples of registry tracking and using aggregate data.
