About this Resource:
Behavioral health is undergoing a significant change with a focus on measurement-based care that treats to defined targets like other medical conditions. In this recording, Dr. Lori Raney discusses how primary care and specialty behavioral health practices can lead this change by moving beyond simply screening and follow-up plans to identify targets and then using validated measurement tools to assess treatment response and adjust treatment according to outcomes. She provides examples including the PHQ9 for depression, GAD7 for anxiety, and Vanderbilt for ADHD. She advocates for advancing this approach for the treatment of behavioral health conditions as a central tool for enhancing and informing population health and providing better metrics on behavioral health need and improvement.
