SOMB Data Collection System
Attention Treatment Providers, Evaluators and Polygraph Examiners!
The Colorado House Bill 16-1345 mandates the SOMB to collect data from the evaluators, treatment providers, and polygraph examiners at the time of service completion for each client. We are near completion in developing a new database system you will need to utilize in adhering to this mandate. In the upcoming months we are planning to host a series of short trianings to help you get familiar with the database. This training will introduce the brand new data management system and teach participants how to use it. Background, key issues, approved SOMB provider account set-up and main modules of the data system will be introduced. The in-person hands-on training will focus on login issues and specific strategies in using the system.
Providers will be able to update the following information with our brand-new SOMB Provider Data management system:
•Additional Languages Spoken
•You can add, edit, or delete your address information
•Counties that provider services (up to 10)
We have a few training options available for you.
this training is only for SOMB approved treatment providers, polygraph examiners and evaluators.

Young Adult Survey
In August, a survey was distributed pertaining to the issue of historical cases and the utilization of the Young Adult Modification (YAM) Protocol. This survey was created based on a request of the Best Practices Committee to obtain answers and clarification from treatment providers, supervising officers, and human services providers regarding these types of cases and the use of the YAM Protocol. The answers to this survey have been collected and are due to be analyzed for a report to the committee in the coming months. The purpose behind this is to see if there are any issues with these type of cases and the Protocol in the Standards that is used to address them, and if such issues are identified by the Board and its committees will have to evaluate if a revision to the protocol and Standards are necessary.
