nView Health Hosting 'Outcome Measurement in Mental Healthcare' Panel Discussion
ATLANTA, Nov. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- nView Health will be hosting leading behavioral health experts for a panel discussion on December 8 from 4:00–5:00 EDT.
Measurement-based care (MBC) is increasingly a primary point of focus in behavioral health and healthcare in general. It's also considered a standard of care for mental health providers. Despite this attention and recognition, MBC remains underutilized, and its importance in behavioral health is often underappreciated. Let's take a closer look at why this is the case.

When patients are concerned about a behavioral health issue, one of the first recommended steps is talking to a healthcare professional. Whether it's a primary care doctor or behavioral health specialist such as a psychologist, the practitioner may conduct a behavioral health assessment, also sometimes referred to as a behavioral health clinical assessment. Such an assessment can help identify behavioral health problems and assist the practitioner in figuring out the best way to address them.
