Adult Mental Health Targeted Case Management (AMH-TCM) and Outcome Reporting

AMH-TCM lead agencies will begin collecting data on employment and housing-related outcomes on July 1, 2017 and report data on January 1, 2018, and every 6 mos. thereafter (6 month cycle). For more information, please see the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): Adult Mental Health Targeted Case Management Transition to Outcome Reporting published January 31, 2017.

Which outcome measures will AMH-TCM lead agencies report on?

In collaboration with a coalition of AMH-TCM lead agencies and contracted vendors, DHS’ Mental Health Division determined that AMH-TCM agencies will report individual-level data on employment and housing outcomes only at this time. Data will include:

  1. Employment-related outcomes which align with the informed choice-employment initiative under Minnesota’s Olmstead Plan.
  2. Housing-related outcomes which align with the informed choice initiative under Minnesota’s Olmstead Plan.


Where will the data be reported?

The Mental Health Information System (MHIS) and Social Service Information System (SSIS) are the systems that AMH-TCM agencies (and contracted vendors) will report this data to. AMH-TCM lead agencies and contracted vendors may choose which system they report data into.

  • MHIS is available for data reporting beginning July 1, 2017.
  • SSIS won’t be available on July 1, 2017. SSIS will be available for data reporting on September 5, 2017. An interim solution to cover the reporting period of July 1 – September 4, 2017 is under development. DHS is working on a temporarily solution to track data on outcome measures if you plan to report into SSIS. We’ll make this available to you in advance of July 1, 2017 and share this with you via the Mental Health Division’s ListServ (see below for instructions on how to subscribe). 

Training on MHIS & SSIS with new outcome measures will be offered by DHS. Training is for AMH-TCM agencies’ personnel responsible for data collection, analysis and reporting. The content of this training isn’t intended for case managers delivering services. Rather, this is for the people responsible to collect and report on outcome measures at each agency.
