Adult partial hospitalization outcomes


From November 2015 until February 2020, 604 adults have admitted to our partial hospitalization care, completed measure at both admission and discharge.  Of these patients, 68% were female and the mean age was 34.4 years (SD=13.4).  The average number of treatment days in partial hospitalization care is 16.7 days.

Quick Inventory of Depressive Symptomatology (QIDS)

The Quick Inventory of Depressive Symptomatology (QIDS) measures the overall severity of depressive symptoms.

At time of admission to our partial hospitalization care, individuals report moderate depression, as measured by the QIDS (m=16.3. SD=4.63); at time of discharge individuals report mild levels of depression (m=9.12. SD=5.09).  Utilizing paired sample t-tests, we find that these differences are statistically significant at the p<.001.

Scores range from 0-27.  Higher scores indicate greater severity of depression symptoms.

  • 0-5 = None  
  • 6-10 = Mild
  • 11-15 = Moderate
  • 16-20 = Severe
  • 21-27 = Very Severe


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.

Additionally, patients have statistical improvements in quality of life, measured by the Q-LES-Q-SF.  Patients admitted with a poor to fair quality of life (m=40.8. SD=15.1); and discharged with a fair to good quality of life (m=58. SD=16.8).  This is significant at the p<.001.

Though there is not an industry standard for interpreting score results, Rogers uses the following categories to evaluate our patients’ assessment of their quality of life:

  • 80 - very good
  • 64 - good
  • 48 - fair
  • 32 - poor
  • 16 - very poor

Rogers Behavioral Health has more than 20 years 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 and partial hospitalization 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 one year 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.
