A large body of research has shown that measurement-based care (MBC) can improve clinical outcomes and provide a number of benefits to both providers and patients in mental health care.

  • Improve patient outcomes and significantly increase the therapeutic effect size
  • Detect symptom deterioration faster and increase rates of detection
  • Increase therapeutic efficiency - faster symptomatic improvement
  • Detection of acute situations
  • Increase patient adherence to medication and treatment protocols
  • Patients feel more engaged and informed and in control
  • Patients are more in tune with their own progress and recognize early signs of relapse or promising signs of improvement
  • Patients find that this approach improves the therapeutic relationship with the provider and enhances communication
