Three Key Components of ASI-MV

Pricing and Ordering Information

ASI-MV (Addiction Severity Index-Multimedia Version) is the electronic version of the traditional paper- and pencil-administered ASI.

The BHI-MV (Behavioral Health Index-Multimedia Version) is an on-line, client self-administered comprehensive behavioral health assessment tool which provides an overview of the client's functioning in multiple key life domains. Using the evidenced-based Addiction Severity Index-Multimedia Version (ASI-MV) as its core, the BHI-MV includes questions focusing on broader mental health issues, tobacco, gambling, and CARF and Joint Commission recommendations.

Domains from the ASI-MV:
• Medical
• Employment
• Alcohol    
• Drug
• Legal
• Family
• Psychological
Additional content BHI-MV
• Eating Disorders
• Trauma
• Self-harm
• Violence
• Tobacco
• Gambling
• Military Status
• Snap Survey

Delivered via a secure website, both BHI-MV and ASI-MV do not require assistance by your staff for clients to complete. Because the assessment is taken electronically, multiple clients can complete an assessment 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 has the time to meet with family members of clients and other members of the treatment team and can work with clients regarding outcomes immediately after the assessment is complete. Clinical staff can save up to three hours of the time needed to capture the equivalent amount of data found in traditional tools. This time savings directly translates into cost savings for your facility.

BHI-MV and ASI-MV makes it easy for clinicians to gather data for:

  • Diagnosis documentation
  • Treatment planning
  • Client placement
  • Referrals
  • Outcome measurement
  • Quality assurance

Proven reliable and valid in clinical studies, BHI-MV and ASI-MV saves time and money while ensuring quality and standardization of care, giving you the data outcomes necessary to gain insight into the unique needs, trends, and outcomes of your client population.

2. Reports
Interview data is organized into reports for systematic treatment planning, client placement, referrals, and outcome measurement:

  • Narrative Report—graphic representation of the client's response to each of the seven domains assessed. This is an ideal tool to show clients how they scored in each of the domain areas and gather additional information about their answers.
  • Client Placement Worksheet--interview data is populated within the six dimensions of the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Patient Placement Criteria.
  • Treatment Planning Tool--summarizes the data across the seven domains. Information is displayed in an easy-to-navigate report.
  • Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Summary--indicates whether the client is a victim of abuse.
