The Joint Commission has developed new requirements related to Standard CTS.03.01.09. While this standard has always required organizations to assess outcomes of care, treatment, or services, organizations will now be required to accomplish this through the use of a standardized tool or instrument. Feedback derived through these standardized instruments may be used to inform goals and objectives, monitor individual progress, and inform decisions related to individual plans for care, treatment, or services. Aggregate data from the tools may also be used for organizational performance improvement efforts and to evaluate outcomes of care, treatment, or services provided to the population(s) served.

All primary care and behavioral health providers treating mental health and substance use disorders should implement a system of measurement-based care whereby validated symptom rating scales are completed by patients and reviewed by clinicians during encounters.  Measurement-based care will help providers determine whether the treatment is working and facilitate treatment adjustments, consultations, or referrals for higher intensity services when patients are not improving as expected
