Timberline Knolls utilizes the 24-item Behavior and Symptom Identification Scale, BASIS-24®, a leading behavioral health assessment tool. The BASIS-24® identifies a wide range of symptoms and problems that occur across the diagnostic spectrum. Grounded in the latest scientific methods of survey development and validation, the BASIS-24® underwent extensive field testing as part of a multiyear research and development process. BASIS-24® is validated in both Spanish and English. The 24 questions are scored using a weighted average algorithm that gives an overall score and scores for six subscales for the following domains of psychiatric and substance abuse symptoms and functioning: Depression and Functioning, Relationships, Self-Harm, Emotional Lability, Psychosis, and Substance Abuse.
The BASIS-24® is designed for use by mental health providers, researchers, purchasers of mental health services, accreditation agencies, and internal quality assurance departments to measure the change in consumer self-reported symptom and problem difficulty over the course of treatment. The outcome measure is administered at admission, mid-point, and discharge. Participation is voluntary and encouraged.
For the analysis, we measure in a percentage decrease in symptoms over time. For example: For depression/functioning symptoms, residents reported an average 49.46% decrease in symptoms in that category from October 2020-October 2021.
