Abstract: Outcome measurement addresses the primary objectives of health care: are health interventions making a positive difference to consumers? This paper will give an overview of the development and implementation of outcome measurement, which was introduced in mid-2000 at four Victorian sites delivering mental health services to adults. It will describe the benefits of outcome measurement for consumers, services and policy makers. The presentation will look at the impact this approach can have on consumers, and how outcome measurement provides consumers with a way of assessing their own progress. The other benefits to be outlined include how service providers can monitor progress of individuals, whilst for policy makers, the paper will show the benefits of being able to compare services based of the profile of their patients.
