A collaboration between PCMIS, mental health researchers from world-leading universities, and clinicians, Outcome Feedback is an innovative ‘Expected Treatment Response’ tool embedded within PCMIS’ case management system that tracks a patient’s progress in real time. This enables clinicians to quickly and easily identify patients at risk of deterioration.
Using standardised questionnaires (PHQ-9 for depression and GAD-7 for anxiety) that measure symptom severity, results are plotted graphically to show session-to-session change.
Changes in symptoms across treatment are compared to the expected rate of improvement, which is based on the observed course of treatment for hundreds of similar cases using an algorithm derived from the analysis of large (N>1000) clinical-practice datasets.
Clinicians are trained to discuss the graphs with patients carefully, opening up treatment to facilitate discussion, empowering them to take part in a plan for their own progress and allowing obstacles to recovery to be overcome much quicker at less cost.
