Behavioral Health

The behavioral health practice management registry follows from the chronic pain platform as chronic pain is one of the most frequently cited morbidities treated in behavioral health centers. A recent report by The Kennedy Forum emphasized the need for a system of measurement-based care using validated scales to assess the need for and response to therapy. To accomplish this, The Kennedy Forum proposed a core set of outcomes measures for behavioral health interventions. This core set provides the context for a proposed Behavioral Health Management Registry (BHMR). The purpose of this commentary is to describe the structure and content of the BHMR. The BHMR provides access to nine sympton rating scales for depression, mania, anxiety, PTSD, panic attacks, alcohol use, drug abuse and somatization, together with supplementary questions to capture socio-demographic characteristics of patients, pain experience and opiod use, medical  marijuana, DSM-V criteria for PTSD diagnosis and sleep experience.

 

The commentary (with a full set of reports available for site implementation) is:
