Benchmarking
 
...Know Where You Stand!                                                              

Behavioral Pathway Systems is the premier industry resource for behavioral health and human services benchmarking. The BPS web site provides one-stop shopping for benchmarks in many facets of the field of behavioral health and human services.

Why Consider Benchmarking?
Consider this. A thermometer would have little value as a measure of your health, if you didn’t know that 98.6° were normal. Similarly, measures of organizational performance are simply “numbers” in the absence of a context. Benchmarking transforms data into actionable information. Research has clearly demonstrated that providing a comparative context for performance measures leads to significant improvements.

Benchmarking Initiatives
BPS works in concert with national and regional professional associations to co-sponsor formalized benchmarking initiatives. These initiatives, which are tailored to the unique needs of the sponsoring association, pursue three objectives: (1) to produce aggregated data that can be used by the sponsoring association for advocacy and planning purposes, (2) to provide individualized benchmarking reports to each participating organization, and (3) to conduct process benchmarking workshops that seek to identify best practices. Data can be submitted through direct file transmission or specially designed on-line surveys. These initiatives also feature a monthly audio conference series and other opportunities for professional development in the realm of benchmarking and performance management. These initiatives are intended to raise the level of organizational performance among participating entities.
