Behavioral Health

Behavioral health agencies face difficult issues in caring for individuals with mental illness. Effective care through the use of health IT is critical to meeting the next wave of “triple aim” goals: lower costs, more effective care, and better outcomes. Nowhere is this more difficult that in supporting better care coordination.

Even as recent research has indicated that nearly 70% of individuals with a behavioral health condition have a co-occurring chronic medical issue, behavioral health agencies face substantial challenges using technology to coordinate care effectively.
