Clinical Systems and Programming in Human Services Organizations: EnvisionSMART™: A Melmark Model of Administration and Operation provides a step-by-step plan for creating clinical programs within HSOs using Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA) and Functional Analysis (FA) Systems. This includes establishing standards and guidelines for behavior support plans that meet federal and state guidelines. Readers are also provided with instructions and templates on how prepare clinical “report cards” to track patient progress. The book promotes a multidisciplinary working environment for clinicians to help foster collaboration amongst medical, nursing, psychiatric and allied professionals. Human Service Organizations (HSO) are groups, both public and private with one main goal, to enhance human well-being.

With the decrease of federal funding for these services, many private HSOs have been created to supplement the void. To ensure that these HSOs provide adequate services to their patients, it is vital that they adopt an effective model. The Organizational Behavior Management (OBM) model is an effective approach to designing, implementing and maintaining services within HSOs. Each volume in this series highlights key concepts and applications pertinent to each division of HSOs and is written in a user-friendly format.
