The HiTOP clinical field trials include 1) provision of a HiTOP-consistent intake battery--the HiTOP-SR--to 12 sites around the world; 2) training and support for use of the HiTOP-SR; 3) collection of satisfaction and feasibility data at a subset of trial sites. Trial sites include outpatient psychiatric and psychotherapy clinic settings. The aim of these trials is to incorporate the HiTOP Digital Assessment Tracker, a HiTOP-consistent assessment battery, into clinical protocols to inform treatment and to receive systematic feedback on improvements needed to the HiTOP diagnostic process.
