Outcome Measures: A Joint Commission Requirement by January 2018

The Joint Commission has developed new requirements for organizations assessing patient outcomes. The Joint Commission has previously required assessments of outcomes of care, treatment, or services and will expand on those requirements by tracking those measures through the use of a standardized tool or instrument, by January 2018.
OutcomeTools provides public domain assessments for delivery and scoring to meet Joint Commission requirements. Tools such as PHQ-9, GAD-7, and Columbia Suicide Severity Rating scale (CSSRS) as well as other instruments, are available in the public domain and can be delivered electronically through OutcomeTools. Custom surveys can also be requested to add to a database. Full list of assessments can be found here: http://www.bestnotes.com/questionnaire-library/
OutcomeTools was created in response to challenges faced by members of the National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs in their efforts to perform outcomes research. The system is designed to simplify the administration process and increase response rates. Organizations use OutcomeTools to electronically administer, score, and report on many types of outcome measures provided by a growing list of copyright owners and open sources. The system provides real-time feedback to increase the engagement of participants and staff. Smart automation frees providers to focus on aligning participant responses with treatment and service plans.
OutcomeTools can be used as a stand-alone system or is integrated with BestNotes EHR/CRM. As a secure web-based application, OutcomeTools is an ideal mechanism for conducting large scale studies involving multiple organizations
