4The Theory of MyOutcomes “The general trajectory of change in successful therapy is predictable”1Measures of client progress and experience of the therapeutic alliance can be used to “determine the appropriateness of the current therapy … [and] the need for further treatment … [and to] prompt a clinical consultation for patients who [are] not progressing at expected levels.”2“Clients … quickly tire of measures that lack obvious face validity, require more than a few minutes to complete, or use time spent with the clinician.”3
5What is MyOutcomes?Administers two brief, four-item measures at each session of serviceOutcome Ratings Scale (ORS) or Child Outcome Ratings Scale (CORS)Session Ratings Scale (SRS) or Session Ratings Scale (CSRS)Provides outcomes reporting at all levels of an organization, identifies cases at risk for service failure, and provides empirically-based feedback messages.
6Benefits of MyOutcomes Improves service outcomesBoosts revenues and efficiencies by reducing no-shows, dropouts, length of stay, and overutilizationGets provider participation because client feedback process is fast, easy and relevantProvides automated, quantifiable results to validate performanceEmpowers client with a voice in the service process
7Improves Service Outcomes More than doubles the effectiveness of services, according to published, peer-reviewed research.In a study with over 6,000 clients of a Texas Employee Assistance Program, effect size increased 65% from baseline levels.4A Minnesota alcohol and drug treatment center improved client completion rates from 50% to 82%, achieving the state’s best rate.
8Boosts Revenue and Efficiencies Boosts revenue by reducing no shows and cancellations.Boosts efficiencies by reducing dropouts, length-of-stay, and overutilization.In a three year Florida study of 2130 cases, average number of sessions dropped by 40%, cancellations by 40%, no shows by 25% and long-term cases with no improvement by 80%. Created savings of $489,600.
