This project investigates the usefulness of patient demographic and service delivery data collected from individual patient/clinician encounters in Navy outpatient mental health. Results of the pilot study indicate that service members in different pay grades are referred for distinctly different reasons and receive different services. A basic clinical data collection system was devised, and is currently undergoing expanded field testing. Development of this system is described. Preliminary results indicate that data collection from individual patient/clinician encounters with data entry by clinicians is feasible with two qualifications: (1) the variables selected must be few and presented in a format that is quick and easy to complete; and (2) the data collected must be directly relevant to the reports generated and worth the effort of data entry to the clinicians involved.
