AN OVERVIEW OF MEASUREMENT-BASED CARE IN BEHAVIORAL HEALTH

Just a decade ago, the majority of behavioral healthcare clinicians did not commonly use patient reported outcome measures (PROMs)1 for routine clinical care. More recently, however, there has been a large shift due to the development of innovative technologies, such as measurement feedback systems (MFS), that allow clinicians to easily administer a broad range of validated scales or measures. Decades of research now demonstrates that this practice, known as measurementbased care (MBC) – or the systematic use of patient-reported data to monitor treatment and inform care decisions – outperforms usual care, particularly for those patients who are not initially responding to treatment.
