The BHI-MV (Behavioral Health Index – Multimedia Version) incorporates the seven domains of the ASI-MV®: Medical; Employment; Alcohol; Drug; Legal; Family/Social; and Psychological, as well as its valid and reliable scores. However, the BHI-MV also includes enhanced mental health questions important to behavioral health agencies working with co-occurring populations. In addition, it includes tobacco and gambling questions and a survey asking clients about their strengths, needs, abilities, and preferences (SNAP), to provide a more comprehensive portrait of their life situation. Behavioral health professionals use the BHI-MV to conduct more effective assessments, to bridge data into treatment, and to measure outcomes.

The BHI-MV provides interactive (audio-assisted), client self-administration of the widely used ASI for adults, while also including enhanced mental health, tobacco and gambling questions. Developed and validated with more than $6 million of funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Behavioral Health suite of tools are research-tested to promote honest feedback during the assessment process.
The BHI-MV comprehensive clinical reports help healthcare providers improve their treatment planning, while speeding up data collection. The primary clinical report is the Narrative which summarizes all the data within the BHI-MV, while the Client Placement ASAM Worksheet populates the six dimensions of the ASAM criteria with relevant data to assist clinicians in making their level of care determinations.
Analytic tools help providers monitor trends, characteristics and outcomes of their populations. Staff can access real-time, aggregate, de-identified client interview data for the sites, organizations, regions, and states which they are authorized to view. They can generate charts and tables of client interview data for their organization, and use custom queries to group data, conduct analysis, and identify trends.
Remote or off-site assessments
The Behavioral health suite of assessment tools are all remote capable. This means providers can send clients an email invitation to securely log onto an assessment from their homes. This can assist organizations with gathering follow-up data, as well as to start the initial interview assessment a day or two before the face to face appointment. In either case, the tool can be completed on site if not finished remotely.
