Where clinical records such things like compliance to treatment, a non-clinical tool would capture quality of life markers and outcomes that reflect recovery values, like hope, sense of purpose, and/or engagement/connection with community. Faces and Voices of Recovery has the Recovery Data Platform (RDP) and in some states they have added different questions to their regular health management systems.

PSMC-3.0 states the program uses validated, non-clinical tools at entry and across time to track participant progress and program outcomes. Can you provide examples or references to such tools?
