The Client Registry (commonly known as the Unified Services Transaction Form) is a reporting system developed in 1978 through the concerted efforts of different task forces, groups, administrators, and service providers.  The system is a computerized, de-identified client registry for all State and county hospitals and community mental health agencies funded by the State or Federal government.

In July 1981, the USTF was to replace yet another entrenched form - the Hospital Record Summary - at the State and county hospitals and all contract programs started using the form.  To meet the ever changing demand for enhanced client service and dictated by growing reporting requirements, the USTF was subjected to extensive scrutiny -- that culminated in its final form and new name. 

The Client Registry was formally introduced to end-users in a conference held on November 21, 1988, attended by county mental health administrators, agency/hospital representatives and Division staff.  The form was implemented on July 1, 1989.
