Behavioral Health Care Coordination

The Behavioral Health Care Coordination indicators focus on enhancing planning and coordination for individuals with histories of high utilization of inpatient and emergency room behavioral health services, as well as individuals with a diagnosis of schizophrenia, bipolar, or depression and who might have concerns related to adherence and discontinuation of certain medications. 

The indicator set includes a summary indicator identifying the number of unique individuals who meet criteria for any of the Behavioral Health Care Coordination indicators.  All measures apply to both adults and children.  The set includes seven indicators.  The Behavioral Health Care Coordination Indicator Descriptions PDF Document (110kb) document provides a brief description for each indicator in the indictor set.

Detailed information about the Behavioral Health Care Coordination indicators can be found in the Technical Specifications.PDF Document (278kb) 

Coming Soon:  OMH is in the process of developing reference guides for the Behavioral Health Care Coordination indicators.  The reference guide will define the scope of the problem, examine the quality concerns, offer clinical recommendations, and provide an annotated bibliography.
