Substance use and mental health disorders impact people differently and fall on a wide spectrum of severity. At Vertava Health, we are doing our best to ensure that each patient is placed in the right treatment program for them. Not only do we offer the full continuum of care from residential to outpatient treatment to meet people at different stages of the recovery journey, but also we are taking steps to place people in the right level of treatment based on their specific needs and goals.
Better Patient Assessment & Better Care
Tridiuum, a premier provider of digital behavioral health solutions, offers a Behavioral Health Index (BHI) that is a measurement-based assessment tool for behavioral health severity that uses validated population data to define “norms” and organize patients based on acuity of symptoms to enhance their recovery outcomes. At Vertava Health, we are partnering with Tridiuum to make the Behavioral Health Index the foundation of our patient assessments to improve placement of patients at various stages of their treatment journey. Not only will we be using this tool to better understand patient needs before treatment begins, but we also plan to use this digital health tool throughout each patient’s recovery journey.
This type of qualitative and data-driven approach to behavioral health assessments ensure that patients are in the level of care that is best fit for their specific needs and goals at the time of the evaluation. As they progress through recovery, their needs will change and so should their treatment. At Vertava Health, we are committed to providing individualized treatment plans that do just that, so we will be using the Behavioral Health Index regularly during the patient’s journey, rather than just upon intake. Each one of our levels of care also follows American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) criteria for guided treatment plans that are designed with the patient’s long-term success in mind.
With many people struggling from the mental health impacts of COVID-19 and the stress of the holidays around the corner, the need for better and more tailored substance abuse and mental health care is even more important.
