Behavioral health professional and regulatory organizations are stepping up support for routine outcomes monitoring (ROM) (also referred by by terms such as Outcomes Monitoring, Feedback Informed Treatment, Measurement Based Care, etc). They encourage clinicians to monitor patients’ responses to treatment and identify those at risk of a bad outcome and those who are progressing as expected. ROM is also promoted to compare the effectiveness of clinicians. But a soon to be published analysis suggests ROM systems have overstated their case and recommends caution by clinicians using them.
