1.1 The Goals of P-CIS
For behavioral health and social care, it is difficult to measure success for a person. The primary way clinicians and practitioners measure progress is through the use of routine assessments. Assessments, depending on the type, are administered at regular intervals throughout a determined treatment period. During these assessments, people are asked a number of questions and the variance of their answers at each interval attempts to tell a story as to whether or not they are recovering or on an adverse trajectory. However, when assessments are collected on paper or individual electronic files, it has been difficult to track changes over time. The goal of P-CIS is to transform assessment data into actionable information to inform care plans, as outlined in by the following list of goals.
Goals of P-CIS:
- Help track trajectories of Resilience and Recovery.
- Help view and track information about a person or family in the most meaningful way.
- Convert assessment and questionnaire information into something meaningful for staff, practitioners and Circle of Care helpers while capturing voice and choice of the person in care.
