News & Notes: Stanly ACTT receives one of the highest fidelity scores in the state
The Stanly Assertive Community Treatment Team (ACTT) recently received one of the highest fidelity scores in the state.
ACTT teams, which are designed to provide comprehensive, community-based psychiatric treatment, rehabilitation, and support to persons with serious and persistent mental illness, are reviewed by the state through a system known as the tool for measurement of assertive community treatment, or TMACT.
Monarch’s Stanly ACTT started their review process last year, and of the 30 teams reviewed this past year, only three received a score above 4, with Stanly’s team receiving a 4.02 out of 5.
Allison Wilson, clinical operations director for Region 1, said the score shows what a great job the team has done in implementing good practices and that “the 103 people being served by Monarch’s Stanly team are getting the quality service they need and deserve.”
