Mental Health Data Infrastructure Grants for Quality Improvement (State DIG): The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Center for Mental Health Services is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2007 for Mental Health Data Infrastructure Grants for Quality Improvement (State DIG). The purpose of this program is to implement and strengthen the annual collection of the Uniform Reporting System (URS) measures which include the National Outcome Measures (NOMs), and to fund State Mental Health authorities to improve State and local data infrastructure for reporting and planning. This project supports the reporting of the CMHS National Mental Health Block Grant program.In 2002, SAMHSA launched the Data Infrastructure Grant (DIG) Program to begin collecting system-level performance measures from all the States. The primary objective of the DIGs was to enable States to develop the infrastructure needed to support uniform data reporting across State Mental Health Agencies (SMHAs) and across multiple local agencies. The first issuance of the DIG Program focused on State testing and infrastructure development related to the evolving Uniform Reporting System (URS). The National Outcome Measures (NOMs) evolved from the original URS. Eight of the NOMs domains are already part of the URS. As grantees have developed and adopted the common data standards, they have been increasingly able to collect the Uniform Reporting System data to meet the reporting requirements of the Block Grant Program. Over the last 4 years of the State DIG program, the ability to report the eight NOMs domains has increased notably. In 2002, only one of the domains (Utilization) was being reported by 75% or more of grantees. By 2005, five of the domains (Utilization, Employment, Adult Consumer Evaluation Outcomes, Living Situation, State Psychiatric Hospital Readmissions) were being reported by 75% or more of grantees and three of the four remaining domains were reported by 50-74% of grantees. The future of the SAMHSA/CMHS State mental health data reporting program continues to evolve with a related plan to implement a State Client Level Initiative project with a few States to test the feasibility of implementing client level reporting in the States. Activities of this pilot in the next three years will include: 1) identifying and documenting the States most promising approaches to the collection of client-level data; 2) developing recommendations for expanding client-level data collection systems to incorporate the NOMs; and 3) pilot testing the most promising approaches with other interested States to determine their feasibility.State DIG grants are authorized under Sections 520A and 1971 (42 U.S.C. 300y) of the Public Health Service Act, as amended. This announcement addresses Healthy People 2010 focus area 18 (Mental Health and Mental Disorders).
