Knowledge for Good Webinar: A Centralized Solution for Managing Patients in Mental Health Crisis
Presented by Nishi Rawat, MD, SVP at Appriss Health & OpenBeds Founder
Crisis Management System
There's been a surge in psychiatric crises and substance use disorder with the COVID pandemic and worsening opioid epidemic. But the harsh reality is that many people in mental health crisis continue to be diverted unnecessarily to emergency rooms and even jails or left to manage on their own.
To help address state's needs in a more centralized way, Appriss Health has developed the OpenBeds Crisis Management System. It's designed to:
- expedite access to assessment and treatment for those in crisis;
- track their journey from call to treatment, and;
- coordinate all stakeholders within a crisis management system.
Attend our session to hear why having a centralized crisis management system is important to states and how our system works.
