Reducing administrative burden

CarePaths’ tools make MBC more accessible than ever by eliminating the need to personally administer assessments to your clients. Clients are notified at the same time every week to complete assessments, which they can do in the patient portal or in the CarePaths Connect patient app.

Automatic notifications and reminders

Depending on your clients’ preferences, you can have automatic notifications and reminders sent to your clients via text message or email when they have assessments to complete.

Frequently Asked Questions About Measurement Based Care

The only thing that will change is that your clients will automatically be asked to complete certain self-assessments before their sessions (and occasionally after). Their responses over time will be made available to you and your client in an easy-to-read graph. You can use this data to modify your clinical approach as you see fit.

By creating a CarePaths account and activating CarePaths Connect you can turn on MBC for all your clients or select those that are appropriate

CarePaths Automated Measurement Based Care by Bruce Wampold is currently FREE for up to 30 clients per therapist and FREE for CarePaths EHR users. You can use CarePaths MBC tools beyond 30 clients for $9 per therapist per month.

It is our belief that all clinicians no matter what their level of experience can greatly improve their clinical effectiveness by engaging in Measurement-Based Care.
