How psychological testing can reinstate its value in an era of cost containment



How psychological testing can reinstate its value in an era of cost containment



Behavioral Healthcare Tomorrow 5(1): 59-61



Managed care methods, and the cost containment concerns from which they arose, have dramatically reduced the use of psychological testing dramatically. This article critiques that trend, and proposes how selected tests can be used cost-effectively in specific situations. The author has conducted research and written extensively on this subject, including a chapter in "The Computerization of Behavioral Healthcare: How to Enhance Clinical Practice, Management and Communications."
