Measuring Progress in Mental Health Treatment

JOSH ROBERTO - Oct. 21, 2017 - Using Measurement Data Encourages Treatment Compliance

Anyone that’s been through therapy for a mental illness has likely experienced “treatment fatigue”. Treatment requires a lot of work, and is a long process of ups and downs, with some days better than others. Because of this effort, it is easy to get discouraged when progress is tough to recognize, but the challenges so apparent.

By integrating a measured approach into treatment, both patient and clinician can easily view progress. And not at a subjective level clouded with uncertainty, but rather concrete statistics. This data provides reassurance to individuals that even though things may be difficult, they are in fact getting better. Or conversely, it provides evidence that treatment is not working and that it may be time to try something new. Imagine a runner training for a race, trying to improve their speed without the ability to monitor time or distance. How would they know if they're getting faster?

When starting a treatment plan, patients must be prepared with realistic expectations of progress. There is no magic pill that is going to cure all. Progress is not going to be rapid and profound, but rather slow and difficult at times. Clinicians and Care Givers should regularly remind patients of this, and convey the importance of measuring progress. One method of doing this is by consistently using that measurement data with the patient. With the ability for patients to enter and track data such as mood, social interactions, medication compliance and Observer feedback, Clinicians and Patients can spend the majority of their time in sessions focused on treatment, not getting caught up on what happened since their last session.

For patients, the ability for clinicians to access and track their data between sessions (and for clinicians to reach out to the patient with a message if necessary) motivates them to work harder for the next week. Care coordination happens much more quickly with Faro10, as well. Instead of wasting valuable time playing phone tag, therapist and psychiatrist can communicate with one another immediately.

When both Clinician and Patient embrace this measured approach, the treatment process can become more focused and measured with the availability of meaningful data.
