What is TREAT?
The Roster of Electronic Assessment Tools (TREAT) is a Web-based software suite of integrated healthcare solutions, including powerful clinical screening and assessment tools, comprehensive care planning and clinical documentation, industry best practices, easy data collection and submission, and detailed reporting and graphing.
TREAT facilitates the improvement of care across the continuum with its all-in-one and easy-to-use design. In TREAT, clinical data is securely and readily made available to healthcare custodians and decision makers across the continuum of care in the time and format that they need it.
What is the difference between TREAT tools and paper based tools?
Paper based assessment tools create the same challenges posed
by any other paper based system. They are often bulky, can be
easily misplaced, pose threats to patient or client confidentiality,
and are prone to human errors especially when calculating scores.
They provide no mechanism for error checking and are often difficult
to store even for the most organized personnel. Data retrieval,
analysis, and review is often tedious, time consuming, and again
is prone to human error.
TREAT on the other hand is a platform for the implementation
of all assessment tools rather than an application for only one
assessment tool. This is highly convenient because all tools are
located in one central place. With its user-friendly and intuitive
interface, once a user has learnt how to use one tool, he/she
can use them all. Because TREAT automates scoring, graphing, provides
interpretation, generates reports, and sends reminders to users
on various tasks; data collection, retrieval, analysis, and review
is faster, more efficient, and error-free. Also, since TREAT is
web-base, research studies and data can be potentially securely
shared by users all over the world. Can your paper-based assessments

Do I need a license to use the tools on TREAT?
There are two parts to this question. You need to subscribe or
purchase a license to use the TREAT system. In addition, there
are some assessment tools whose authors charge for their use.
TREAT only allows users to use tools that they are legally allowed
to use and require proof of licensing before granting access to
the electronic version of the tools. For such tools, you will
need to purchase a license from the tool authors/owners. However, tools
that are in the public domain can be used free of
charge; you will not need to purchase the tool license, but will need to be
a subscribed (licensed) user on TREAT.
