The BHI-MV™ (Behavioral Health Index – Multimedia Version) incorporates the seven domains of the ASI-MV®, plus enhanced mental health questions which are important to behavioral health agencies working with co-occurring populations. In addition, it includes tobacco and gambling questions and a survey asking clients about their strengths, needs, abilities, and preferences (SNAP), to provide a more comprehensive portrait of their life situation.

Behavioral health professionals rely on the BHI-MV to conduct more effective assessments, bridge data into treatment, and measure outcomes.

Clinical reports

BHI-MV comprehensive clinical reports help healthcare providers improve their treatment planning, while speeding up data collection. The primary clinical report is the Narrative, which summarizes all the data within the BHI-MV, while the Client Placement ASAM Worksheet populates the six dimensions of the ASAM criteria with relevant data to assist clinicians in making their level-of-care determinations.


Analytic tools help providers monitor trends, characteristics and outcomes of their populations. Staff can access access aggregate, de-identified client interview data in real time for the sites, organizations, regions, and states they are authorized to view. They can generate charts and tables of client interview data for their organization and use custom queries to group data, conduct analysis, and identify trends.

The Behavioral Health suite of assessment tools are all remote capable. This means providers can send clients an email invitation to securely log onto an assessment from their homes. This can assist organizations with gathering follow-up data, as well as starting the initial interview assessment a day or two before the face-to-face appointment. In either case, the tool can be completed on site if not finished remotely.
