CHAT (Comprehensive Health Assessment for Teens) is a webbased interactive behavioral health assessment tool specifically designed for use with adolescent clients, ages 13–18. Delivered via a secure website, CHAT does not require assistance by your staff for clients to complete. Because the assessment is taken electronically, multiple clients can complete CHAT simulatneously at your facility or even remotely. What’s more, scoring is automated—your staff does not need to perform the time-consuming task of hand-scoring assessments.
By administering this important treatment planning tool online, your staff now have the time to meet with family members of clients and other members of the treatment team and can work with adolescents regarding outcomes immediately after the assessment is complete. With CHAT, clinical staff can save up to three hours* of the time needed to capture the equivalent amount of data found in traditional assessment tools. This time savings directly translates to cost savings for your facility.
This unique program possesses key features that are currently lacking in other adolescent assessment instruments:
Clients complete an online, interactive interview to assess 12 domain areas: alcohol use, drug use, tobacco use, psychological health, family relationships, peer relationships, physical health, romantic relationships, school issues, work issues, legal issues, and recreational activities. Once the interview is complete, scoring is automated and immediate and a variety of reports are generated.
Interview data is organized into reports for systematic treatment planning, client placement, referrals, and outcome measurement.
Custom Analytics Available
HIPAA-compliant, anonymous data is automatically uploaded, allowing you to:
An analytical Overview allows you to view a snapshot of client demographics, including age, race, gender, and whether the client has been in a controlled environment in the past 30 days.
Custom analytics for CHAT are available at an additional cost.
