Briefing / Roundtable: mental health value – made to measure?

19 January 2021
1 CPD hour
Focusing on value requires data and there is no shortage of data in mental health services. But much of it disappears into a black hole. An HFMA Roundtable in December 2020, sponsored by healthcare productivity specialist Meridian Productivity, discussed the importance of having the right information and reducing the collection burden.

Key messages from the session included: collect the right data; collect it for a purpose; use it; feed it back to service users and clinicians; and stop collecting what you don’t need. There was also discussion about the importance of involving service users in developing outcome measures that matter to them and the importance of developing a more meaningful mental health currency.
