Reports and rating scales can be a helpful starting point in a clinical evaluation, but are not a substitute for clinical evaluation.  

Pre-assessment reports help you to track your progress and communicate efficiently.  

The CCI Pre-Assessment summary report is designed to help you be an active agent in your care. It collects your responses to routine questions and organizes information into displays you can view and share with your care providers.

This chart shows treatments you reported for the last week and your comments.

All rating scale scores require interpretation by a qualified clinician

My progress over time:

These line graphs give a longitudinal view of your scores over time. Many care providers will find these scores meaningful, because the same scales are commonly used to track response to treatment in clinical trials. The line for Depression MADRS is blue. The line for Mood elevation YMRS is red, and the line for Life Enjoyment QLESQ is gold.
