About Advanced Metrics Content Page


Advanced Metrics was formed to address the needs of provider and managed behavioral health care organizations around accountability and quality improvement. We take advantage of the input, knowledge, experiences, and lessons learned of people who have been working in the behavioral and mental health field for many years.

Today, our services and systems are designed and built on the most current information available regarding outcomes management, both scientifically and technologically. Advanced Metrics operates KIDnet, a web-based software system, hosted on cloud infrastructure. KIDnet is designed for the capturing and real-time reporting of data from clinicians, parents, and children. This process provides the infrastructure support needed for providers and families to understand and manage outcomes.

Each youth, along with their parent/legal guardian, participates in an initial assessment at admission to services, treatment, or intervention. Updates are collected at set intervals for the duration of the services, at discharge and post-discharge. Data elements include demographics, presenting issues (risk, problems, social factors, trauma exposure), mental health history, symptoms, diagnosis, functioning (school, family, community), substance use, and service utilization.

Advanced Metris is involved in several projects evaluating service systems to improve the quality of care for youth. As KIDnet, becomes integral to the delivery of care in community and school settings, it provides practice-based evidence, a knowledge base of effectiveness trials under clinically representation conditions, needed for improving treatment effectiveness, identifying, and adopting best practices.
