The Center for Behavioral Health Innovation (BHI) at Antioch University New England was asked by New Hampshire’s Endowment for Health (EH) to create a field assessment tool, to inform the strategic allocation of resources in EH’s priority areas and to evaluate changes in the field over time. The Field Assessment Tool (FASST 3.0) estimates the level of field development across 6 domains and 31 items, based on key informant interviews conducted and scored by trained external evaluators. FASST was piloted in the Elder Health field in 2016, to test the tool and provide an early/baseline estimate of the development of EH’s newest priority population. It was modified with the infusion of Equity items into each of the domains and deployed in the field of Children’s Behavioral Health in 2017.
