Quality Measures & Outcomes In Behavioral Health

Quality measures are essential to driving improvement in medical and behavioral health care, and aligning payment with value. Because individuals with behavioral health disorders often have comorbid medical conditions,1 it’s essential to closely monitor the outcomes of the services they receive in order to continually raise patients to a higher level of wellbeing.
