Outcomes of the treatment of schizophrenia were measured using three self-report instruments: the BASIS-32 (self-reported mental health problems), the SF12 (self-reported health-related quality of life)and the Consumer Assessment of Behavioral Health Plans (CABHS). In addition, we gathered level of functioning data from case-managers or clinicians using the Life Skills Profile. These data were collected during interviews with 400 study enrollees. Preliminary data will be presented, comparing managed and unmanaged Medicaid beneficiaries.

Learning Objectives: To learn about outcome instruments appropriate for outcomes measurement in adults with schizophrenia who are disabled and seriously ill and to hear preliminary findings from a study using these measures

Keywords: Outcomes Research, Medicaid Managed Care
