gAIN data for evaluation and research
Client level GAIN information contained in the reports available from GAIN ABS are very useful for clinicians and other staff to determine if clients meet diagnostic criteria, when determining level of care placement, treatment recommendations, appropriate referrals, and other things. In addition, the aggregate (or group level) GAIN data can assist program evaluators and researchers as well. Program evaluators can use aggregate GAIN data to help program leadership understanding the characteristics of their program and determine what works best for their clients. Researchers can request access to GAIN data from other program sites, which then can be combined into large pooled data sets to answer research questions at the national and regional level.
