In 2016, the state began purchasing behavioral health services through regionally operated behavioral health organizations (BHO) through a managed-care structure.
As a result of the transition, the Behavioral Health Data Consolidation (BHDC) project was started with the goal of developing and implementing a combined behavioral healthcare model, ultimately incorporating integrated behavioral health data collection, storage and supporting reporting functions and substance abuse data collection into a database called the Behavioral Health Data System (BHDS). This was done in collaboration with BHO representatives in a workgroup called the Behavioral Health Data Group (BHDG).
The result of this collaboration is the data guide that determines how organizations format and submit data to DBHR:

SCOPE is a reporting tool that allows you to run both mental health and substance use related reports based on the CIS and TARGET data.
SCOPE gives users several analysis tools and features:
- Charting: after generating custom tables in the analyzer, most of you have the option of viewing the results as a chart. Vertical or horizontal bar charts, grouped bar charts, and line plots are all available.
- Saved queries: for routine monitoring, many of you run the same query month after month as the data is updated. SCOPE allows you to save queries and rerun them with a single click of a mouse.
- Expanded access: regardless of your role in the treatment system, if you are a registered user of SCOPE you will be able to generate results for the state as a whole, any county or BHO in the state, and any treatment agency. To protect patient confidentiality, if you are generating results for a county or agency you are not associated with, the results will be rounded to the nearest multiple of five.
