CDR is committed to a data-driven social systems that benefits all parties. Towards this end, we have developed a model which seeks to increase collaboration between patients, providers and payers, and which facilitates high-quality care. Below are some key benefits to providers implementing CDR systems
Software: CDR’s DataPool starts as an outcomes tool for clinicians. Utilizing communimetric tools such as the CANS and ANSA, the DataPool provides a structured assessment, ensuring that clients are thoroughly assessed. The software then provides instant feedback in the form of reports, severity measures, and graphs that are instantly helpful to clinicians and families in discussing disposition, and progress over time. Likewise, supervisors are able to review individual cases and programs from a higher vantage point: looking at case mixes, comparing the outcomes of multiple programs, and other data related clinical insights. In all, the DataPool provides a means for clinical and quality organization hitherto not possible in social services and community behavioral health.
CDR’s software is more than just a tool for managing internal clinical outcomes, but ultimately a tool improving coordination and communication with payers, government or oversight entities, and the public. With appropriate permissions, the application can be made available to families who want to see their own progress, and to payers for collaborative and improved authorization and review processes. It produces outcomes reports the whole community can understand, and which demonstrate your organization’s impact and value. Thus the DataPool helps make your agency’s data impactful in the community.
Data Analysis: CDR provides helpful analytic tools and supports for provider members. First, the application comes with several built-in reports on client progress and severity, as well as aggregate reports on programs and entire agencies. Further, the DataPool provides decision-support algorithms, developed by CDR, which link clients to appropriate evidence-based care based on their unique needs.
CDR also provides “Do It Yourself” Data Analysis trainings for clinical leaders, in which we show providers how to access their agency’s own data, and then how to use common software like Excel to answer your own questions of the data.
