  2. Acute Community Support Plan (ACSP) • Comprehensive support and resource planning process that is driven by a blending of the consumer’s, family’s, and treatment/service coordination team’s preferences, recommendations, and competencies. • Promotes higher levels of accountability • Uses external facilitator to encourage new thinking and provide objective review • Supported by web-based application to ensures all parties working with the same information • Modeled after the Mayview CSP discharge process

  3. Key Characteristics of a CSP • Shared responsibility between County, MCO, IP team, community providers, consumer, and other supports • A disciplined and highly facilitated process using a non-affiliated facilitator and recorder • Consumers get to where they need to be rather than following a continuum of care • Avoid ‘one size fits all’ approach to discharge planning • An incremental approach to discharge planning • Recovery focused and person-centered

  4. Why do an ACSP: Outcomes • Positive consumer outcomes • Understanding and respecting the client’s choices is critical for long-term success • Greater satisfaction • Improved quality of life • Greater ownership in discharge process • Positive system outcomes • Improved collaboration among key stakeholders • Higher level of accountability • Services/supports match consumer needs • Reduced inpatient recidivism • Initiated to improve consumer outcomes and not just to increase access to resources
