The Feedback Readiness Index and Fidelity Measure (FRIFM) is an organizational readiness checklist and evaluation tool for behavioral health agencies, services and/or systems of care specifically designed to assist in the implementation of FIT. The FRIFM addresses six realms, each of which is an important organizational component in evaluating a system’s readiness to implement or fidelity to a feedback informed approach to services.
The FRIFM provides detailed indicators of issues likely to impede successful implementation of FIT practice. By completing this tool, agency managers are able to quickly and easily:
Identify a system’s strengths and weaknesses important to using the FIT approach.
Prioritize realms in need of consultation and training.
Set specific objectives and goals necessary for successful implementation of FIT.
Measure progress of and identify barriers during implementation.
Administering and then comparing the responses of the clinical staff, supervisors, and managers, can help identify and foster discussion regarding the successes, challenges, and barriers to implementing FIT. It is recommended that the FRIFM be used not only as a tool to assess readiness for FIT implementation but also as a means of evaluating whether all necessary steps and structures are in place to support FIT in the agency throughout the installation and implementation stages. The FRIFM document provides a clear picture of an agency in “full and sustainable operation.”
