Measurement of Clinical Practice Guidelines

Each year, NBH measures provider’s adherence to at least three (3) Clinical Practice Guidelines via medical records. NBH has chosen the following two adult-focused and one child-focused Clinical Practice Resources for 2020 measurement.

Clinical Practice Resources

  • Practice Guidelines for the Treatment of Patients with Substance Use Disorders
  • Practice Parameter for the Assessment and Treatment of Children and Adolescents with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
  • Treating Major Depressive Disorder in Adults, American Psychiatric Association

To this end, portions of member’s medical records will be reviewed using the measurement tool below. Questions have been developed from the resources and baseline data will be collected in 2020.
