The Web-based Core Assessment Battery (WebCAB) builds off of the Early Psychosis Intervention Network (EPINET) CAB, which includes a number of standardized measures within assessment domains (e.g., Symptoms, Functioning). The EPINET CAB is designed to serve as a basis for common data collection across all EPINET clinics. The goal is to aggregate CAB data across clinics in order to examine questions with statistical power. The WebCAB is designed to serve as a resource for data collection efforts within Coordinated Specialty Care (CSC) clinics outside of EPINET.

The WebCAB will be available starting in 2022
