Recovery Measures

How We Measure Recovery

Our four instruments measure recovery from multiple perspectives and dimensions. When you join Reaching Recovery®, you can use one or all four of our instruments to link outcomes to service effectiveness and system transformation. This process gives our partners a comprehensive picture and a standardized method for examining effectiveness of services and outcomes.

How It Works

Clinical Decision Support

The data collection and reports are placed directly within the EHR allowing clinical decisions to be informed by real-time recovery data.  The recovery-focused reports demonstrate growth and changes with each individual over time to inform clinical practice. 

Consumer Engagement

Ongoing assessments are completed by the consumer to ensure that their perception of recovery and growth are discussed and addressed throughout treatment. 

Output Sharing

The results are shared and discussed among staff and consumers for treatment planning, supervision, and utilization management.  Partners are also participating in national benchmarking and analytics to best understand mental health recovery. 

Right Service at Right Time

We’re shifting the emphasis from a passive client model that focuses solely on symptom management to a true, patient-centric approach that helps deliver the right service at the right time for each individual.

What People Are Saying

“The Reaching Recovery tools not only measure the treatment community’s ability to provide the interventions and supports that clients need to regain their lives, but the tools also remind the provider of the true purpose of why we work in this field and why we’re here.”
