We recently completed a project for Washington to update the PHQ-9 assessment and added a new report related to referrals made from the PHQ-9. Here’s an overview of that project.
ASSESSMENT DATA ENTRY UPDATES
Next Due Date was added to the top of the assessment. The default can also be managed by the Admin from the SETUP > PREFERENCES > FAMILY ASSESSMENTS section. You can also set a reminder based on the Next Due Date field.
“Are you currently receiving mental health services/counseling?”
- New question that defaults to “Not asked”
- When selecting “Yes”, a date picker will appear in order to indicate the “As of” date. This field only specifies month and year
PHQ-9 Resource Connection
Just like child screenings, you can now record a Resource Connection directly from the PHQ-9 assessment record.
On the Assessments page, a new table for Resource Connections related to Family Assessments has been added.
- When recording a connection from the PHQ-9 assessment, the connection will appear in this table
- All other Resource Connections that indicate YES for REFERRAL FROM ASSESSMENT? will also be included in this table
NEW WA PHQ-9 REFERRALS REPORT
A new report is now available in REPORTS > ASSESSMENT REPORTS titled WA PHQ-9 Referrals.
This report is available to any program using the PHQ-9 but is specifically designed based on Washington’s implementation requirements for the PHQ-9 and related referrals.
The current PHQ-9 reports have also been updated to include the new fields and Resource Connection information.
Let us know if you have any questions.
