A pilot project to develop a practical and clinically useful data capture system is described. The system is designed to collect quality assurance and clinical outcome data on a routine basis to monitor and improve the efficiency and efficacy of the service offered by a multidisciplinary community mental health team. The system follows an “input‐process‐outcome” model. Quality and outcome measures are discussed with particular reference to the literature on simple outcome evaluation measures and the use of global scales.
