Did you know you can send your clients a link so they can login from their home computer?
Connect with your clients with the specific reports generated by the system.
The OQ®-Analyst is available as a fully hosted service that is accessible to you via Internet any time. The hosted system gives you the benefit of not having to think about any technical issues. All you need to do is collect and review your outcome data. Did you know the hosting service offers you a way to have your clients' login from any computer to complete their questionnaire with no security problems?
The software will score the Outcome Questionnaire and generate reports within 3-5 seconds saving clinician and administrative time.
|OQ Measures can work with any EHR/EMR and a link to the OQ®-Analyst can be added to the EHR/EMR’s system so you only have to logon to one system. EHR/EMRs are designed to be accessed by all people involved in the clients care. With EHR/EMRs, all members of the team have ready access to the latest information allowing for more coordinated, client-centered care. Contact us for details.|
It's easy to administer the Questionnaires.
The OQ®-Analyst is designed to administer the instruments in either a paper or electronic format (PC, Kiosk, Tablet, Netbook, or smart phone). This approach allows your client to quickly complete the questionnaires within 5 to 7 minutes. Click here for an overview of the different administration methods available.
As a clinician, you receive reports alerting you of your client's current status.
Reports include easy reading graphs that:
- track your client's progress
- track your client's current distress level
- track your client's critical items
- track your client's alert status
You can share your client feedback report which you can use in therapy sessions to engage your clients in their own therapy and increase their progress.
OQ®-Analyst is listed by SAMHSA in their National Registry of Evidence Based Programs and Practices (NREPP).
Dan Matthews, Ph.D., Director
After a year of experience with the OQ®-45.2 and OQ®-ASC (the instruments we use most frequently), I think I can speak for the doctoral students who are using it as well as myself. In a department that has adopted a clinical science model, emphasizing training in empirically supported treatments, we have found an increment of efficacy by using the OQ. For example, in two cases that I supervise, we have paused in the treatment plan to attend to social support when treatment progress was not what was expected. The treatment appears to have benefited from this alteration of the plan (the OQ will let us know).
In cases where progress is acceptable, we are able to consider termination with clients earlier than was the case historically. For me (an older clinician who emphasizes non-specific factors and the therapeutic relationship) the OQ gives empirical support and point-at-able effects in specific cases, adding credibility to the factors that I think are important before and beyond specific treatment effects. This, of course, is just a repetition of the hoped-for and supported effects in the outcome-guided therapy literature.
So, thank you. We're happy to be renewing. My doctoral student supervisees and I are hooked.

"We believe that outcome measures should go well beyond measuring change. The purpose of the OQ®-Analyst is to improve outcomes, by measuring, monitoring, and identifying off-track cases as well as providing problem solving tools to improve treatment response."
What do the OQ®-Analyst alerts mean?
Your client is functioning in the normal range.
Green alert: The rate of change your client is making is in the adequate range. No change in treatment plan is recommended.
Yellow alert: The rate of change your client is making is less than adequate. Recommendations: Consider altering your treatment plan by intensifying treatment, shifting intervention strategies and monitoring progress especially carefully. Your client may end up with no significant benefit from therapy.
Red alert: Your client is not making the expected level of progress. Chances are your client will drop out of treatment prematurely or have a negative treatment outcome. Steps should be taken to carefully review this case and decide on a new course of action.
Research has proven that clients whose progress is likely to lead to dropping out of therapy can be identified before treatment ends. Speedy feedback to the clinicians and clients can reduce failure by two-thirds.
