How do I benchmark my outcomes?

The Severity Adjusted Effect Size is calculated for each client and provides an indicator of how that client's change on the outcome questionnaire compares to comparable patients in the database, after adjusting for differences in case mix.
  • Severity Adjusted Effect Size between .5 and .8 indicates treatment is effective
  • Severity Adjusted Effect Size of .8 or higher indicates treatment is highly effective, comparable to or exceeding results for typical well controlled psychotherapy studies

The Clincian's Decision Support Toolkit houses client level data for each clinician and also provides summary statistics on the number of cases and the average Benchmark Score. The Toolkit date is updated several times daily, and permits the clinician to monitor their Severity Adjusted Effect Size on a continuous basis.

For more on benchmarking and the use of severity adjusted effect size scores see Outcomes Benchmarking and the ACORN Criteria for Effectiveness.
