Presentation Type: topical discussion

Synopsis: There is a growing demand for quality/outcome monitoring and accountability in behavioral healthcare requiring the management of complex information. The movement of behavioral healthcare toward a "managed careƓ perspective in the private and public sectors has increased administrative functions charged with enhancing quality while reducing the associated costs. This discussion focuses on two distinct approaches used to assess the performance of treatment systems delivering care for adolescents with substance abuse /co-occurring disorders. The first approach uses administrative data and tracks movement within and across treatment episodes. The second approach focuses on self-report data from the adolescent and/or from his/her caregivers.
