The state quality management system is a requirement of the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) block grants for mental health and substance abuse and prevention. The Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services must demonstrate the capacity and capability to make data-driven decisions based on performance measures. In early 2011, SAMHSA provided technical assistance to what was then called the Ohio Department of Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services (ODADAS) to develop a state-level quality management system for alcohol and other drug services. ODADAS consolidated with the Ohio Department of Mental Health in 2013 and its quality framework is being adopted for mental health services performance management. A state quality management system for substance abuse prevention also is currently under development.
