Quarterly Reports Designed to Answer Key Systems Questions • Monitor, Review and Assess Use of Behavioral Health Inpatient Care • Who is receiving care at the highest level? • Are the individual’s needs being identified and addressed? • Are individuals being connected with care post-discharge? • Why are individuals being readmitted to inpatient care? • How many admissions are classified as “long stay” – and what resources are lacking in communities such that longer stays are required?
Quarterly Reports will be Designed to Answer Key Systems Questions • Children’s Outpatient SED Tracking • Who is being diagnosed as SED? • Where are children/youth with SED receiving outpatient care? • Cross-System Linkages • What types of cross-systems linkages are needed for individuals receiving inpatient behavioral health care? • What types of linkages are needed with physical health care services? Are they happening?
Quarterly Reports will be Designed to Answer Key Systems Questions • Provider Profile Reports • Display data, at the provider level, on key descriptive and performance dimensions: • Demographic and clinical characteristics • Provider / WRBHO staff interaction • Length of stay • Connection to outpatient care • Reports will include comparisons to regional average and track changes over time
Charge for the Sub-Regional Meetings Work together via facilitated discussions to: Provide feedback concerning your experience with the WRBHO Begin the development of a cross-system plan to impact inpatient /outpatient transitions
….As you have your sub-regional discussions, please consider the following information being provided by John and Chris…..
Practices that Support Effective Inpatient to Outpatient Transitions Some facts: Only 42% of initial appointments following psychiatric hospitalization are kept nationally. Missed appointments increase the likelihood of re-hospitalization and increase costs of outpatient care. (Kreyenbuhl, Nossel, & Dixon, 2009). Between 25% and 50% of patients who miss mental health appointments disengage from treatment entirely (Killaspy, 2007).
Practices that Support Effective Inpatient to Outpatient Transitions Some facts… Dropping out of treatment after a psychiatric hospitalization increases the likelihood of re-hospitalization from 1 in 10 to 1 in 4 (Mitchell & Selmes, 2007). Keeping one outpatient appointment reduces the risk of re-hospitalization (Nelson, Maruish, & Axler, 2000).
Practices that Support Effective Inpatient to Outpatient Transitions – What Works…. • A pre-discharge transition interview with the patient to identify and address barriers to attendance. • Patient telephone contact pre-discharge with the outpatient provider. • Communication about the patient’s discharge plans between inpatient and outpatient clinicians.
Practices that Support Effective Inpatient to Outpatient Transitions – What Works…. • Return to their previous outpatient provider… unless the individual prefers another provider or when specific clinical needs would suggest an alternative. • Scheduling appointments within a few days of hospital discharge. • Reminder letters or phone calls from the outpatient provider regarding scheduled appointments.

Each group will: • Provide feedback on their experience with the WRBHO • Discuss the current inpatient/outpatient transition process: what is working well?, What should work better?, What are the barriers to making it better? • Identify the three things most important things to change • Discuss what key stakeholder groups should be asked to do in order to achieve the desired change • Decide upon three steps to take between now and the next meeting
Sub-regional MeetingsWhat to Expect Each group will report back to the sub-regional group prior to the end of the session. Each sub region will provide feedback on the usefulness of the sub-region structure for future meetings. Information collected will be transcribed and sent out to all participants after the meeting
