Early psychosis network aims to collect data statewide and bring best practices to clinician’s fingertips
Project: Tara Niendam, Ph.D., leads the Early Psychosis Intervention in California and Learning Health Care Network projects. The primary aim of the projects are to increase the quality of mental health services for early psychosis (EP) programs across California by bringing measurement-based care and best practices to clinicians’ fingertips using a custom EP-focused application.
Update: The projects are in their second and third years, respectively. Several California county partners are in the process of joining the existing network to increase participation in the collection of treatment and outcomes data. To date, we have conducted 26 focus groups across the network to prioritize core outcomes for the application.
