OBJECTIVE Measurement-based care involves the systematic administration of symptom rating scales and use of the results to drive clinical decision making at the level of the individual patient. [] Key MethodRESULTS Fifty-one relevant articles were reviewed. There are numerous brief structured symptom rating scales that have strong psychometric properties. Virtually all randomized controlled trials with frequent and timely feedback of patient-reported symptoms to the provider during the medication management…
Harnessing Technology to Implement Measurement-Based Care
TLDR
If the underresourced mental health system is to provide best care to patients, psychiatry needs to become more receptive to patient feedback about the efficacy of treatment provided, and there is a looming imperative for practicing psychiatrists to utilize MBC.
Measuring Psychiatric Symptoms Remotely: a Systematic Review of Remote Measurement-Based Care
TLDR
Remote measurement-based care appears feasible and acceptable and may be a promising intervention for improving mental health care, but additional experimental studies are needed.
Measurement-Based Care in Psychiatry.
TLDR
It will be important for providers and organizations to consider MBC as an evidence-based framework to reduce variability in psychiatric treatment and improve patient outcomes as mental health care moves in the direction of value-driven incentives.
Collecting and Delivering Progress Feedback: A Meta-Analysis of Routine Outcome Monitoring
TLDR
Two-thirds of the studies found that ROM-assisted psychotherapy was superior to treatment-as-usual offered by the same practitioners, and Feedback practices reduced deterioration rates and nearly doubled clinically significant/reliable change rates in clients who were predicted to have a poor outcome.
Evidence Brief : Use of Patient Reported Outcome Measures for Measurement Based Care in Mental Health Shared Decision-Making Investigators :
TLDR
This rapid review found no studies of the specific VArecommended approach of using any of 4 recommended patient-reported outcome measures for implementing measurement based care (MBC) in the context of shared decision-making in mental health.
Systematic Review of Symptom Assessment Measures for Use in Measurement-Based Care of Bipolar Disorders.
TLDR
This study synthesizes the literature on patient-reported and clinician-observed measures of symptoms of bipolar disorder and the potential use of these measures in MBC, finding suitable choices are available for MBC of bipolar disorders.
Implementing Measurement-Based Care in Behavioral Health: A Review
TLDR
A narrative review of measurement-based care, informed by implementation science, offers a 10-point research agenda to improve the integration of MBC into clinical practice.
MFA and ASA-MF: A Psychometric Analysis of Attitudes Towards Measurement-Based Care
TLDR
This study examines the psychometric properties of the MFA and ASA-MF, including the factor structure, longitudinal invariance, and indicators of validity, in a sample of community mental health clinicians and demonstrates adequate fit to their factor structures across time.
Development and Implementation of a Psychotherapy Tracking Database in Primary Care
TLDR
The development and implementation of an innovative approach that, with further empirical study and refinement, could enable health care professionals and systems to understand their population and clinical process in a way that addresses essential gaps in the integrated care literature.
Setting Measurement-Based Care in Motion: Practical Lessons in the Implementation and Integration of Measurement-Based Care in Psychiatry Clinical Practice
TLDR
The top 10 lessons the authors learned as they confronted practical obstacles around implementing the ideals of MBC into a pre-existing, busy psychiatric clinical practice are described and how doing so impacts care, provider engagement, patient engagement, and research opportunity.

Using feedback from patient-reported outcome measures in mental health services: a scoping study and typology.
TLDR
It is highlighted that PROM feedback appears to be more effective when integrated in a formalized and structured manner, and future work is required to isolate these effects from common procedural correlates, such as monitoring of the therapeutic alliance.
Practice-Based Evidence Study Design for Comparative Effectiveness Research
TLDR
Outcomes improved when practices associated with better outcomes in PBE-CPI analyses were adopted in practice and can uncover better practices more quickly than randomized controlled trials or sophisticated statistical methods, while achieving many of the same advantages.

TLDR
Six individualized outcome measures that have been identified in the rehabilitation and psychology literature are reviewed and it is found that each met the description of a standardized, client-centred outcome measure.
Effect of feedback of treatment outcome in specialist mental healthcare: meta-analysis
TLDR
Evidence on the effects of outcome management in mental healthcare is promising but more targeted research is needed in order to identify the effective ingredients of outcome feedback and to assess its cost-effectiveness.
Screening and case-finding instruments for depression: a meta-analysis
TLDR
If used alone, case-finding or screening questionnaires for depression appear to have little or no impact on the detection and management of depression by clinicians, and recommendations to adopt screening strategies using standardized questionnaires without organizational enhancements are not justified.
Routine outcome measurement by mental health-care providers: is it worth doing?
The acceptability and effectiveness of patient-reported assessments and feedback in a managed behavioral healthcare setting.
TLDR
The study suggests that patient-reported mental health assessments have the potential both to become acceptable to clinicians and to improve the effectiveness of clinical care.
Measurement-Based Care Versus Standard Care for Major Depression: A Randomized Controlled Trial With Blind Raters.
TLDR
The results demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of measurement-based care for outpatients with moderate to severe major depression, suggesting that this approach can be incorporated in the clinical care of patients with major depression.
A randomized trial using computerized decision support to improve treatment of major depression in primary care
TLDR
Screening for major depression, electronically informing PCPs of the diagnosis, and then exposing them to evidence-based treatment recommendations for depression via EMR has little differential impact on patients’ 3- or 6-month clinical outcomes or on process measures consistent with high-quality depression care.
Feedback to clinicians: theory, research, and practice.
TLDR
In contrast to the mixed results for clinical experience and supervision, providing client health status feedback to clinicians significantly improves outcome, especially for clients who are not doing well in therapy.
