What's New: New Outcome Measures Plus Patient Billing Settings Updates
By TherapyNotes, LLC on August 24, 2023
Our Outcome Measures Library continues to grow with the addition of three new measures: theAdult ADHD Self-Report Scale-V1.1 (ASRS), the Adult Brief Dissociative Experiences Scale–Modified (DES-B), and the Social Interaction Anxiety Scale (SIAS). As with all outcome measures, your clients will be able to complete these on the client portal in either English or Spanish. The outcome measure will be scored and ready for your review after the client has submitted it. Completed questionnaires are saved in the client’s Documents tab and can be printed or downloaded as PDFs.
Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale-V1.1 (ASRS)
The Adult Self-Report Scale is used identify and evaluate symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in adults. The screener should be used in conjunction with a clinical interview to gain additional information about the patient's symptoms, impairments, and history.
The DES-B assesses the severity of dissociative experiences in individuals age 18 and older. The measure is to be completed by the individual upon receiving a diagnosis of a dissociative disorder (or clinically significant dissociative symptoms) and thereafter, prior to follow-up visits with the clinician. Each item asks the individual receiving care to rate the severity of their dissociative experiences during the past 7 days.
Social Interaction Anxiety Scale (SIAS)
The SIAS can help measure a client's risk of social anxiety. While this outcome measure alone does not provide a formal diagnosis, it may be used along with other tools and interventions to help determine if a formal diagnosis of social anxiety is appropriate.
Payment Authorization Form
The Payment Authorization Form has been updated to require that patients enter credit card information to complete submission of the form.
