This program explores strategies to collectively reduce avoidable hospitalization and provide appropriate care both on the outpatient and inpatient side. We will look at two systems, one a private partnership with Montgomery County, Nexis Montgomery Regional Partnership, and the other a Federal initiative with the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) Standards, a partnership among the VA, Veterans Health Administrations Program Officials and Clinicians, Industry, Academic and Research Organizations, and Expert consultants. Initiatives for Nexus include the building of an eight-bed crisis house and an Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) team, which uses an evidence-based model to treat patients with severe mental illness and keep them healthy, stable, and connected to community-based care and support. The VA’s establishment of the Integrated Care Model and Design Guides creates best value standards for optimum care from a functional and safety side as well as quality environment of care and service.
