About NRI

Since1987, NRI has been the only national organization working with state agencies, the Federal Government, and other entities to define, collect, and analyze data on public behavioral health systems. NRI is the preeminent organization for collecting performance measurement data from the majority of state psychiatric facilities and some private psychiatric facilities for The Joint Commission reporting requirements.


NRI has national and state-level information on over seven million consumers served by state behavioral health systems each year and collects data on the more than $38 billion expended financing these services. NRI evaluates these data on national, state, and regional levels to help states better plan, budget, and evaluate the delivery of their services. NRI also provides quality improvement and performance measurement services for psychiatric hospitals through data analysis and support, technical assistance, and reporting services to meet The Joint Commission reporting requirements, ultimately improving the delivery of care in inpatient settings.
