AIMS Caseload Tracker

Printer-friendly version

Using a population-based approach to health care helps ensure that no patient falls through the cracks. Employing a technology tool that tracks clinical outcomes for caseloads of patients and supports systematic changes in treatment for patients who are not improving as expected is an essential piece of all successful integrated care implementations.

There are several options available for effectively tracking patients: 1) a patient tracking spreadsheet, 2) AIMS Caseload Tracker, 3) the AIMS Center’s Care Management Tracking System (CMTS), and 4) a customized build in an Electronic Health Record (EHR).

A streamlined web app for behavioral health caseload management

The AIMS Caseload Tracker is a cloud-based, HIPAA-compliant registry for prioritizing and managing behavioral health caseloads in integrated care settings. Used in parallel to electronic health records, it minimizes double data entry to a few essential elements. The design is simple and streamlined, providing powerful tracking and reporting functions.

  • Provides reminders for patient follow-up
  • Identifies patients not improving on current treatment plan 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 for CPT and CoCM Code billing
