Silver Hill Hospital is committed to collecting data on every patient who comes here for care at admission, at regular intervals during treatment, and at the time of discharge. This enables us to provide real time feedback to patients and clinicians about individual recovery progress. Measurement-based care means that our clinicians use not only their clinical expertise and skills but benchmark their assessments against standardized measures. The use of outcomes data helps ensure highly individualized care for each patient, and the best results. Similarly, outcomes data allows Silver Hill Hospital to evaluate the success of our various levels of care and clinical programs and supports innovation and treatment advancements.
