Data Analysis & Resource Evaluation

NRI has extensive experience collecting and analyzing data from all states and territories related to federal reporting requirements for the Mental Health Block Grant Program, as well as collection and reporting activities related to state psychiatric hospitals accreditation requirements for The Joint Commission and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Additionally, NRI maintains a database on profiles of state behavioral health authorities which includes data on organizations, programs, financing, quality management, information systems, and research and evaluation. NRI has experience conducting specialty state study analyses, include use of emergency rooms by behavioral health clients, mortality rates for persons with serious mental illnesses, and the impact of workforce shortages on the delivery of services. A major focus of NRI data activities has been on the use of data for policy development, planning, and quality improvement.
