Clinical outcomes

Rogers Behavioral Health has more than a decade of commitment and investment in outcomes studies, with nearly 10,000 of our patients participating. Patients who agree to participate are asked at admission and discharge to complete a series of questionnaires; follow-up calls on progress are made periodically after discharge.

Study findings are used by our treatment teams to examine the effectiveness of our clinical program and to make improvements. The findings are also presented at national and international conferences and published in peer-reviewed medical literature.

Overall, our outcome data consistently have shown that our residential treatment centers offer effective treatment, and newer studies under way are demonstrating similar consistency in outcomes for our partial hospital level of outpatient care. In selected programs where we have reached out between six to 12 months after they leave the program, past patients report that they’ve been able to maintain the gains they made during treatment. With the implementation of our Cerner electronic health record, we are gaining additional understanding of our clinical effectiveness across service lines, levels of care and throughout our system, including our regional network of outpatient centers. With this knowledge, we are gaining insights that contribute to real-time adjustments in care and help us confirm the impact of evidence-based care upon outcomes.  

Outcome reports by specialty area

The following outcomes reports were prepared to provide a summary of outcome data by specialty area and may be helpful to referring providers, patients, family members or friends of those seeking treatment.

Rogers Behavioral Health treats obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and anxiety disorders in adults, adolescents, and children. Various measurement tools are used to assess progress, depending on the age of the patient. Click here for outcomes for child and adolescent OCD.

OCD outcomes

Individuals receiving treatment for OCD are routinely assessed to monitor treatment progress and program outcomes. Three tools are used to monitor various aspects of our programs:  

  • Yale Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale (YBOCS) – This 10-item measure rates the severity and type of symptoms. It measures both obsessions and compulsions and is used to monitor symptom improvement during treatment.
  • Quick Inventory of Depressive Symptomology (QIDS) – A 16-item measure that covers nine diagnostic symptom domains used to characterize a major depressive episode. It does not cover items to assess atypical, melancholic or their commonly associated symptoms. We use this measure across our system to quickly assess levels of depression in patients.  
  • Quality of Life Enjoyment and Satisfaction Questionnaire (Q-LES-Q) – This 16-item self-report measures the degree of enjoyment and satisfaction experienced in various areas of daily functioning. Composed of 14 general activity items and two additional items on medication satisfaction and overall life satisfaction item.

The results of this data consistently show positive outcomes. 

Child and adolescent OCD outcomes

Children and adolescents receiving treatment for OCD are assessed using two measures. These measures are utilized to quantify program efficacy and outcomes.  

  • Children’s Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale (CYBOCS) – This 10-item measure rates the severity and type of symptoms. It measures both obsessions and compulsions and is used to monitor symptom improvement during treatment.
  • Pediatric Quality of Life Enjoyment and Satisfaction Questionnaire (PQlesQ) – A 15-item self-report measure designed to measure the degree of enjoyment and satisfaction experienced by child and adolescent patients in various areas of daily functioning. Higher scores indicate great enjoyment and satisfaction.

The results of this data consistently show positive outcomes. 

Rogers Behavioral Health treats eating disorders in adults, adolescents, and children. Various measurement tools are used to assess progress, depending on the age of the patient. Click here for outcomes for child and adolescent eating disorders.

Adult eating disorders outcomes

Individuals receiving treatment for eating disorders are routinely assessed to monitor treatment progress and program outcomes. Three tools are used to monitor the severity of eating disorder symptoms as well as co-occurring problems. These measures help us create individualized treatment plans addressing each person’s unique concerns, assess each person’s progress in treatment and evaluate the overall effectiveness of our programs.

  • Eating Disorder Examination-Questionnaire (EDE-Q) – Assesses the overall severity of eating disorder symptoms across four unique eating disorder features: restraint, eating concern, shape concern, and weight concern. The scores from each category are combined for an overall score which indicates the severity of the eating disorder.
  • Quick Inventory of Depressive Symptomatology (QIDS) – Measures the overall severity of depression symptoms. Because many individuals diagnosed with an eating disorder also struggle with depression, we treat depression and the eating disorder at the same time. This is proven to be more effective than treating the disorders separately.
  • Quality of Life Enjoyment and Satisfaction Questionnaire (Q-LES-Q) – Eating disorders often decrease a person’s overall quality of life. This scale measures the overall enjoyment and satisfaction individuals experience across a number of life domains such as family relationships, work, hobbies, etc. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for those we treat.

Results consist of self-reported outcomes from consenting adults treated between 2015 and 2017 in our eating disorder services. The data below reflects 119 adults who consented and admitted to our residential services and 164 who admitted to partial hospitalization.  The results of this data consistently show positive outcomes. 

Child/adolescent eating disorder outcomes

Children and adolescents receiving treatment for eating disorders are routinely asked to complete two instruments that assess the severity of their eating disorder symptoms as well as co-occurring problems. These measures help us create individualized treatment plans addressing each person’s unique concerns, assess each person’s progress in treatment and evaluate the overall effectiveness of our programs.  

  • Eating Disorder Examination-Questionnaire (EDE-Q) – Assesses the overall severity of eating disorder symptoms across four unique eating disorder features: restraint, eating concern, shape concern, and weight concern. The scores from each category are combined for an overall score which indicates the severity of the eating disorder.
  • Pediatric Quality of Life Enjoyment and Satisfaction Questionnaire (PQ-LES-Q) – A 15-item self-report measure designed to measure the degree of enjoyment and satisfaction experienced by child and adolescent patients in various areas of daily functioning. Higher scores indicate greater enjoyment and satisfaction.

Outcome data reflects 62 residential patients and 139 admitted to our partial hospitalization program. Patients in all groups reported statistically significant improvement.

Addiction services outcomes

Rogers Behavioral Health treats individuals with substance use disorders at the Herrington Recovery Center. Individuals receiving residential treatment at Herrington are asked to routinely complete three instruments that assess the severity of symptoms as well as co-occurring problems of depression and disability. These measures help us create individualized treatment plans, assess each person’s progress in treatment, and evaluate the overall effectiveness of our programs. 

  • Quick Inventory of Depressive Symptomatology (QIDS) – Measures the overall severity of depression symptoms.
  • Quality of Life Enjoyment and Satisfaction Questionnaire (Q-LES-Q) – Measures the overall enjoyment and satisfaction individuals experience across a number of life domains such as family relationships, work, hobbies, etc. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for those we treat.
  • Work and Social Adjustment Scale (WSAS) – Assesses the degree of impairment in work, home management, social and private leisure activities, and close relationships. Each item is rated from 0 (not at all) to 8 (very severely). High scores Indicate greater impairment.

Nashotah Program outcomes

In our Nashotah Residential program, individuals receiving treatment are asked to routinely complete several instruments that assess the severity of their symptoms as well as co-occurring problems. These measures help us create individualized treatment plans addressing each person’s unique concerns, assess each person’s progress in treatment, and evaluate the overall effectiveness of our programs. Using two accepted instruments for measuring emotional regulation and quality of life, Rogers obtained self-reported outcomes from patients treated between 2016 and 2017 for 125 patients in our Nashotah Residential Program.

  • Difficulties in Emotional Regulation Scale (DERS)-Strategies. The DERS is a valid, widely used scale which measures emotional regulation deficits. One aspect of the assessment measures the patients’ belief that the strategies and skills they learn in treatment will help them cope with harmful behavior. The lower the score indicates more confidence in these treatment acquired skills. The graph below reflects the change in the DERS strategy assessment from admission to discharge.
  • Pediatric Quality of Life Enjoyment and Satisfaction Questionnaire (PQ-LES-Q) measures the overall enjoyment and satisfaction an individual experiences across a number of life domains such as family relationships, work, and hobbies, etc. Emotional dysregulation often decrease a person’s overall quality of life. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for those we treat. A higher score at discharge indicates a higher quality of life.
