Hospital Quality Collaborative
Reducing Behavioral Health Inpatient Readmissions

Overview of Project

The New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH), Greater New York Hospital Association (GNYHA), and Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS) are co-sponsoring the Readmissions Quality Collaborative, focused on reducing readmission rates among adults discharged from behavioral health inpatient services. Participating hospitals work together to implement evidence-based practices and operational strategies that optimize care transitions and promote improved client outcomes. Data from the Psychiatric Services and Clinical Knowledge Enhancement System (PSYCKES) supports the quality improvement activities and helps to measure project impact.

News

  • In June 2015, hospitals and health homes began tracking and reporting project interventions and initial outcomes. Each participating service and setting reports separately, by completing the monthly data submission survey. Please see the Monthly Reporting Plan for detailed instructions and survey questions for each setting.

  • The monthly Data Submission Survey for the Readmissions Quality Collaborative is now open. Data is due by May 11th.
