Critical Factors for “Success” in Substance Use Disorder Treatment
Investing in data-driven measurement models will allow providers to leverage new information in a number of areas critical to success that will enhance patient experience, marketing efforts, contracting and organizational metrics.
Recent research into industry trends and expert consensus has identified four key areas of focus in determining quality of substance use disorder treatment: (1) Care for the Caregiver, (2) Recovery Oriented Focus, (3) Inclusion of Family and Loved Ones, and (4) Measurement Based Outcomes. Execution of these functions will distinguish providers that are poised to thrive in today’s market, and all support the success of organizations through periods of industry instability.
This presentation will review each area and offer application examples and support for the treatment of substance use disorder. Participants will be encouraged to participate in discussions around patient characteristics, measurement of outcomes, and defining “success” in today’s treatment milieu.
Upon completion of this webinar, attendees will know how to:
- Define the four key areas of focus and provide examples of how these relate to organization success and patient experience
- Introduce industry guidelines on defining “quality” in treatment and discuss how these apply to developing measurement systems and indicators
- Discuss the pros and cons of different “success” indicators appropriate to the substance treatment industry
