Is your treatment program outcomes-based?

 

With the current landscape concerning the delivery and reimbursement of substance use disorder treatment services, the ability for treatment providers to systematically monitor and document treatment outcomes remains of paramount importance.  The inclusion of substance use disorders as one of the ten elements of essential health benefits has greatly increased the accessibility of treatment and allows considerably more providers to offer and be reimbursed for these services.  Cost and efficiency is no longer the main selling point; quality of services now takes precedence. 


​According to best practices and industry standards, a key indicator of quality treatment care is having valid and reliable measurement systems in place to track patients' response to treatment.  Just as the treatment of other chronic medical conditions such as hypertension involves the regular assessment of blood pressure, addictions treatment providers must routinely collect "addiction & mental health vital signs."  In the absence of standardized metrics, it is difficult to document treatment outcomes and demonstrate any kind of meaningful impact.
