MyOutcomes is a client-directed, outcome-informed (CDOI) therapist tool, systematically bringing the client's voice into every session and producing measurable outcomes on their progress and impression of the treatment process.
Simple Enough for Use in Every Session
Step 1. Administer ORS: At the beginning of each session, the Outcome Rating Scale, also known as the OSR, is presented to the client. This simple four-item self-report measure, designed with the frontline clinician in mind, takes less than a minute to complete.
Step 2. Interpret results: The ORS provides an instant measure of individual functioning, interpersonal relationships, and social role performance. In addition, it generates empirically-based feedback messages to help clinicians interpret and adjust services as needed.
Step 3. Administer SRS: A few minutes before each session ends, the Session Rating Scale, also known as the SRS, is administered and discussed. The SRS is a visual analog scale providing feedback on four aspects of Bordin's traditional description of the alliance. These encompass the relational bond as well as the degree of agreement between the client and the clinician regarding the goals and tasks of treatment.
Step 4. Interpret results: MyOutcomes' therapy feedback system helps detect alliance problems before they exert a negative impact on treatment.
Advanced Reporting Features
By automatically analyzing client responses and mapping them graphically over time against age-adjusted norms, MyOutcomes reports actual versus expected improvements. These provide clinicians with critically important person-centered, evidence-based outcomes to deliver maximum benefit to their clients. In addition, MyOutcomes generates comparison graphs for feedback sources, an invaluable feature for mandated clients and couples or family counseling.
MyOutcomes comes in multiple computer, smart-phone, and iPad administration options, enabling each client to use whatever method works best for them. A paper-and-pencil version is also available; the measures must be scored and entered manually to benefit from MyOutcomes graphing and data aggregation capabilities.
