What are the benefits of measurement-based care?
Evidence suggests that clinicians who use feedback technology respond more quickly to concerns raised by their clients . With the enhanced responsiveness, clinicians can more effectively celebrate treatment gains and pivot to address new concerns or worsening of symptoms.
In user surveys, 75% of clinicians found Mirah to significantly inform and improve treatment plans.
In addition to improving treatment effectiveness, promising research indicates that the use of measurement-based care may also result in increased efficiency of care, defined as lower average duration and cost of care. [7, 8]
Mirah customers have demonstrated improved mental health outcomes to leadership, payers, and state funding agencies, helping to win grants and unlock higher reimbursements.
