Monthly Spotlight

Optimizing Patient Outcomes Through Enhanced Clinical Performance

Attempts to optimize clinical performance look different depending upon the health care system, organization, and practitioner. Initiatives may include efforts to standardize care, measure quality, record and report patient outcomes, improve credentialing requirements, or further specific research inquiries. Calls for systematic performance measurement in behavioral health are growing. Producing positive patient outcomes for individuals living with mental illness can be team a effort. A clinical performance feedback loop that is based in understanding, input, adherence, and coordination from stakeholders across the spectrum of care to address health care needs in an integrated and holistic manner is thought to be key. Visit this month’s Spotlight to stay up-to-date on the performance measures, MBC tools, and research that health professionals need to understand to successfully affect clinical performance, and therefore patient outcomes, in mental health care.
