Grant support & evaluation

IBH Analytics (IBHA), in collaboration with SAMHSA grantees, monitors evaluative grant requirements, supports staff with data driven decision making and ongoing monitoring of program and individual progress. IBHA encourages the use of functional assessment tools to inform and prioritize treatment based on acuity. IBHA aggregates data to better understand the needs of a population from a more holistic integrated approach.

Prevention analytics

IBH Analytics supports prevention organizations by measuring the impact of their mental health and substance use prevention programs and environmental strategies. Our clients have used our prevention analytics to measure the success of their prevention initiatives and to strengthen their communities. Visit our prevention coalition page for more information.

Integrated healthcare solutions

IBH Analytics (IBHA) understands that co-occurring needs and social determinants impact treatment access, engagement, and outcomes. IBHA partners with behavioral health organizations to transform the system of care to better meet the needs of individuals, providers, and the community. We encourage the use of functional assessment tools to assess acuity and to prioritize service needs. A high quality, whole health, service approach starts by strengthening screening, assessment and diagnosing, improving/expanding access to care, developing acuity-based comprehensive service packages, coordinating a continuum of services and client satisfaction. We develop analytically sound data driven integrated solutions to help agencies connect the right person with the right service at the right time.

Outcome performance analytics

IBH Analytics assists communities in identifying, developing, and measuring the impact of high-quality prevention and intervention programs designed to address risk factors and build protective factors. We assist substance use and mental health prevention and treatment programs with a systematic design to develop the evidence to demonstrate short-term and long-term outcomes.

Evidence-based practice consulting

IBH Analytics (IBHA) provides consulting and evaluation expertise for the delivery of evidence-based practices (EBP) for the prevention and treatment of co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders. The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports about half of those who experience a mental illness during their lives will also experience a substance use disorder and vice versa. Effective prevention and treatment for youth and adults with co-occurring conditions are based on valid assessments and the targeted alignment of optimal services for both substance use and mental health needs. IBHA helps select and implement existing EBPs. Additionally, we assist organizations in building, implementing, and evaluating their own unique evidence-based practice, policy, or program.
