Date:1/14/2010

ative to see if it could be useful in my practice," said Award winner Pepper Sarnoff, M.S., M.A., a licensed professional counselor and marriage and family therapist.  "The survey tool was a good reminder about the need for ongoing assessment, especially in later stages of the counseling process. I also learned about some 'problems' my clients had not previously disclosed that might have gotten overlooked."

"Decades of research prove that routine patient feedback to clinicians improves outcomes," said Jeb Brown, PhD, Director of the Center of Clinical Informatics.  OIC provides mental health practitioners with objective data on how their patients are progressing according their patients' survey responses.  APS Healthcare's survey instruments, created with the Center of Clinical Informatics, were tested to ensure their statistical validity and clinical efficacy.  

"It is very important to provide some external measurement of the mental health counseling process to ensure that the best possible care is being delivered," said Steve Saunders, MD, MPH, Chief Medical Officer of APS Healthcare.  "We are very pleased that South Carolina practitioners are finding the instruments valuable, and that they are providing measurable impact on treatment."
