Provider Performance Measurement is needed now.
Due to third party payors demanding provider accountability and cost containment behavioral health and addiction treatment providers have been heavily criticized for the slow pace in adopting performance measures.
All performance measurement systems should have the capability of monitoring quality improvement process (Q.I.) and program evaluation data, by collecting patient treatment outcome information. Provider statistical outcome reports, policies and procedures must at a minimum meet CARF’s current Standards. Regular Quality Assurance reporting that measures organization performance can be utilized within the quality improvement (Q.I.) committee.
Demands for treatment changes by the government and 3rd Party Payors have included variable lengths of stay and cost containment in behavioral health and addiction treatment programs.
The tools to improve services for individual clients through performance measurement exists now.
