It's Expert Day at MyNDTALK!

Evidence-Based Treatment Options - Joanna Conti

Although the Joint Commission has mandated that addiction treatment
programs systematically use symptom scales throughout patient care
(measurement-based care), according to today's guest, many centers do not have measurement-based
care in place. Today's guest, Joanna Conti, says
"Measurement-based care gives clinicians the ability to be more
effective in real-time. It lets them identify groups of patients who
are not progressing as well as others - important information that's
usually invisible without MBC. This is helping clinicians be more
effective and keeping patients in therapy and out of danger." Joanna
Conti is CEO of Vista Research Group one of a small number of
research companies helping to make measurement - based care possible
for behavioral health and addiction treatment organizations. "Our
clients are extremely busy and need high-quality tools that are easy
to use and cost-effective." Joanna shares the experiences in her
personal life that brought her to do the work about which she is so
passionate today.
