Benchmark Score

The term Benchmark Score is not an "official" statistical term, merely a user-friendly alternative to referring to a residualized gain score. The Bechmark Score is the difference between the most recent (or last score) in the treatment episode and the Benchmark Target Final Score. The term Benchmark Score is used in ACORN clinical reports to convey the idea that the residualized gain score provides information on the extent to which the patient's change score differed from the average (benchmark) change score as calculated using the General Linear Model for case mix adjustment. A positive Benchmark Score indicates that the patient has reported more improvement than expected when compared to comparable patients in the database.
