OUTCOMES TOOLS OVERVIEW
Through the support of OhioMHAS – ORH is now able to offer the ORH outcomes tools to all recovery housing operators who receive funding through OhioMHAS or their local county board regardless of certification status.
It is critical that operators and staff of a recovery home attend either a live webinar, in-person training or complete the self-paced online training to learn how to implement the resident-driven survey to collect outcomes data on recovery home residents across the state in order to document resident's changes that occur over time.
The outcomes survey is a resident-driven survey meaning the resident completes the survey.
We are asking you to have your residents complete an outcomes survey at three time intervals:
Move-In: Residents should complete an initial outcomes survey within the first week of their residence. We recognize that on the actual day of move-in, there may be many tasks for the residents to complete, which is why we provide a one-week window.
At six months into their stay with you: This interim measure provides us with a snapshot of the changes residents have experienced at this critical point in their stay.
Move-Out: For planned move-outs, we ask that residents complete a final outcome survey within a week of their move-out date (ideally before they actually leave). For those whose move-out is unplanned, you can complete this information for them. You will indicate online that you are completing the form, rather than the resident. (There is a specific check box to indicate that you are completing the form, rather than the resident).
