2  Describe quantitative findings for 2007 grantees ◦ # People assessed & referred for integrated services ◦ Clinical outcomes  Group discussion of the data ◦ Interpretation – what might the data mean? ◦ Assessment – what are the strengths/limitations of the data?  Format – Present and discuss (5 minutes, small groups) 2

4  14 Implementation projects funded by MeHAF starting in 2007, for three years ( ) ◦ Two ways (linkage mechanisms) were used to link Behavioral/Mental Health Providers and Primary Care Providers:  Referral/consultation (4 projects)  Co-location (10 projects)  Projects were implemented in a variety of sites (settings) – PC practices & CHCs; also B/MH offices, schools, emergency room, dental office 4

5  The number of people who came in contact with integrated services (“reached”) as a result of these projects ◦ Assessed by a B/MH provider after screening for symptoms ◦ Referred for further services based on assessment and patient/provider discussion  Most referrals were to the assessing B/MH provider ◦ Treated in the form of further face-to-face visits with B/MH provider 5 Data Source: JSI’s Client Data Elements (CDE) Access data base

6  7,364 people were assessed for integrated services ◦ 1,014 in 2 consultation projects ◦ 6,350 in 9 co-located projects  3,651 (57%) were referred for additional integrated services ◦ The other 43% - no need for further services at that time rarely was it noted in the CDE that patients refused a referral  Of those referred, most were treated over the course of 90 days after the referral: ◦ 41% (1,497) had multiple B/MH visits ◦ 18% ( 657) had one B/MH visit ◦ 41% (1,497) had no B/MH visits 6

9  What are some ways you are interpreting these statistics? Questions raised?  What might cause the assessment trend line to increase and then decrease over time?  Is 59% of the patients having follow-up appointments “reasonable”? What ways might be used to verify/compare such findings? 9

10  Focus on one dimension of effectiveness – client clinical outcomes  Measures selected by grantee, collected by sites ◦ Depression, anxiety, psychosocial health/functioning, physical health status, more reach statistics  JSI instructed data to be collected on those initially assessed and referred for additional IBH services 10

11  Identifying the right people ◦ data system and staffing constraints  Picking the measurement that fits the conditions treated and understanding how to interpret it ◦ Initial severity determines the size of change score and the amount of time it takes to achieve a substantive change  Collecting multiple measurements ◦ patient participation in repeated measurement ◦ timing of follow-up measurement(s) ◦ impact on work flow  measurement for treatment vs. screening 11

13 13 Selected Findings for 2007 Grantees with Limited Outcome Data

14 Data available for all youth served, using the Global Assessment of Functioning Scale 14 # YouthAvg. BL score Avg. # days F/U Avg. F/U score # clinically significant change School #12158 (46 to 70) …143 days… 60 (46 to 87) 1 Improved (mild to no sx) School #21962 (40 to 73) … 95 days… 63 (40 to 75) 1 improved (mod to mild sx) 1 worsened (mild to mod sx)

15  Only 1 of 3 practices supplied data for half of the reporting period, representing 15/118 (13%) of assessed patients. 6/15 also had a follow-up measure. Measure: interpersonal/social role functioning 15

16  Grantee 3: Data on PHQ-9 and GAD-7 for 313 adults indicates a lot of co-morbid depression and anxiety. 16

17  What are some ways you are interpreting these results? Any questions?  Do you think these data are valuable? In what ways?  What advice do have to help strengthen the data? 17

18 18 Selected Findings for 2007 Grantees with More Complete Outcome Data

19  PHQ-9 is part of routine care; completed at the start of every PC visit and prior to BH visits for those with depression.  The follow-up dated closest to 90 days after the MeHAF initial assessment was chosen for this evaluation; typically days later. ◦ All 3 clinics reported data ◦ 80% of 167 patients had an initial and follow-up assessment 19

20 20 Severe Moderate- to-Severe Moderate Mild None

21 21  50% reduction in symptoms OR PHQ-score <= 5 points attained by:  Site 1: 67% (22/33) people  Site 2: 34% (12/35) people  Site 3: 47% (30/64) people  Overall: 48% (64/132) people

22 22 Grantee 8: Sample table

23  Outcome measure: change in weight  30 members agreed to be weighed monthly  Over the course of 6 months, 22 were measured 2-3 times  4 members’ goal – weight gain  18 members’ goal – weight loss 23

24  The group needing to gain weight gained an average of 8.25 pounds ◦ 2 gained > 5 lbs. over 4-6 months ◦ 2 gained 1-5 lbs. over 1-2 months  The group needing to lose weight lost an average of 9.0 pounds ◦ 9 lost > 5 lbs. ◦ 1 gained > 5 lbs. ◦ 8 maintained weight +/- 5 lbs. 24

25  How are you interpreting these statistics? What are the strengths and limitations?  Could you envision being able to collect this type of data at your site? Would it be useful?  Could this kind of data be helpful for securing additional funding? 25

26  Access to integrated behavioral/mental health services was provided to over 7,000 Maine residents ◦ Nearly 60% were referred for additional services, and of these people, about 60% engaged those services  Measuring clinical outcomes was very challenging ◦ Able to show with initial assessment data that they were reaching high needs groups ◦ Mostly descriptive data; only in a few cases could the potential impact of services be estimated 26
