A fidelity review is a quality-improvement tool

The Center of Excellence for Behavioral Health promotes that evidence-based practices are effective when implemented to fidelity, highlighting the importance for periodic fidelity reviews for the evaluation of program implementation. A fidelity review is not an audit nor is the purpose to scrutinize a program, but to simply evaluate the level of implementation of an evidence-based practice to fidelity. ‚Äč

Our senior consultants work with providers to develop fidelity action-plans that prioritize next steps for implementation and technical assistance.

The Center of Excellence for Behavioral Health currently provides fidelity reviews to ACT, IPS and PSH programs in Iowa.
