Children and young people’s (CYP) IAPT routine outcome monitoring system is a key deliverable within the emerging strategy. Data capture and analysis is critical to the success of the CYP IAPT project. Demonstrating the impact of the project in terms of measuring improved outcomes for children and young people will be central to determining whether or not the initial project is successful, and will determine any future roll out. The Mental Health Community as a whole will be interested in the outcomes of the project and in particular the ability to transform Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) through session-by-session outcome monitoring. The project requires a specialist data management function to collate and clean the data necessary to the project, analyse and report it and support sites to roll out outcome monitoring across all services participating. Potential suppliers will need to have an extensive knowledge and understanding of the outcomes measures; how CAMHS works and the ability to work with CAMHS clinical teams to ensure the data is of good quality, including training data managers; working with Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), to train service leads, supervisors and therapists; contacting CAMHS services and where necessary visiting them to ensure that they understand how to use the system and are aware of their key role. The generation of accurate and reliable data by the various stakeholders inputting data is essential for the delivery of the contract and programme.
The aim of the children and young people’s improving access to psychological therapies project (CYP IAPT) Data Collation service is to develop a robust central data collection and analysis system to monitor outcomes of the overall IAPT project and individual sites.
