CQAIMH - center for quality assessment and improvement in mental health

The National Inventory of Mental Health Quality Measures provides a searchable database of process measures for quality assessment and improvement in mental health and substance abuse care. It includes more than 300 measures developed by government agencies, researchers, clinician/professional organizations, accreditors, health systems/facilities, employer purchasers, consumer coalitions, and commercial organizations. Measure specifications are drawn from developer source materials; a directory of developers provides contact information to obtain further information about individual measures. Information about the measures' clinical rationale and evidence base was developed by CQAIMH staff.

You can search the inventory based on your specifications: domain of quality (i.e., prevention, access, assessment, treatment, continuity, coordination, and safety), patient population, diagnosis, data source, treatment, clinical setting, and evidence level.
