314 Assessing Risk Stratification and Resource Utilization for Patients with Behavioral Health Challenges

This presentation outlines how using a risk stratification model integrated into the EHR can aid clinical management and care coordination, leading to improved communication, more efficient resource placement, and continuity of care by monitoring risk levels in the mental health caseload. The presenters will discuss how this helps ensure patients are receiving the treatment needed for their current risk level, aids in the referral process to a higher level of care, and address housing issues.
