EBPI works closely under the direction of the Department of Behavioral Health and Recovery, to propose and evaluate policy solutions for challenges facing EBP implementation at the state level. Over the last two years, EBPI and DBHR have focused on developing clear guidelines for EBP reporting as well as appropriate monitoring and counting of EBPs from the state billing database.

Reporting Guides

The EBP Reporting Guides provide written direction to providers for when it is appropriate to report an EBP for mental health services. It employs a research grounded and innovative approach to monitoring EBPs for state level reporting by directing providers to use the essential elements of clinical treatment types as the basis for documentation rather than fidelity to name brand treatment programs.
