The AIMS Caseload Tracker (ACT) is a secure web-based registry for managing behavioral health caseloads in integrated care settings. It is used alongside your Electronic Health Record (EHR) to provide powerful tracking and reporting functions:
- Provides reminders for patient follow-up
- Identifies patients not improving to prioritize for treatment adjustment or psychiatric case review
- Displays progress over time for individual patient symptoms using the PHQ-9 and GAD-7
- Produces caseload reports summarizing trends in depression symptom scores and dates of contact
- Calculates real-time statistics like caseload size, length of time in treatment, and frequency of visits
- Facilitates reporting on the HEDIS Depression Remission and Response measure
- Tracks minutes of service delivered each month to facilitate CPT and CoCM Code billing
The AIMS Center offers two versions of the AIMS Caseload Tracker. The first is a low-cost advanced option with EHR interoperability. This version is available for organizations wishing to establish data connectivity in order to streamline clinic workflow and reduce double data-entry burden for staff. The second option is a very low-cost version with easy deployment that allows health care organizations to get started immediately.

This enhanced version uses an integration engine to read real-time clinical data from your EHR and display it within the AIMS Caseload Tracker user interface.
The basic AIMS Caseload Tracker is a standalone version that requires minimal data entry of basic patient information, behavioral health visit dates, PHQ-9 scores, and psychiatric case review dates.
Why Use a Registry?
Being able to clearly define, track, and update a patient's treatment goals is necessary for effective Collaborative Care. Clinicians can use a registry to record symptom measures from validated behavioral health screeners (such as the PHQ-9 and GAD-7) and view how those symptoms are progressing throughout a patient's treatment. This allows the clinician to easily recognize and prioritize patients in need of a treatment adjustment.

Looking for the CMTS?
The Care Management Tracking System (CMTS) is the most fully-featured and customizable registry option that the AIMS Center offers. It has been used in dozens of implementation and research projects in 24 states throughout the US and Canada, helping over 100,000 patients receive better care. However, it is most ideal for research studies or contexts that span multiple healthcare organizations using various EHRs and/or with very specific tracking/reporting needs. The AIMS Caseload Tracker is a more suitable choice for most clinics and behavioral health integration projects without special data collection needs.
