Transformation And Integration Of Care
Integration across levels and systems of care aims to improve:
- continuity of care between inpatient and outpatient behavioral health care
- care for co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders
- care for individuals with co-morbid physical and behavioral health conditions
- care for mental health and substance use disorders treated in the general medical setting
- overall population health through the prevention, early detection, and treatment of behavioral health and substance use risks as soon as, and wherever, needs are identified.
In order to achieve these aims, Desert Rose is focused on accelerating integration within the specialty behavioral health system at the same time we work to support the evolution of behavioral health capacity and capability into the physical health system, using telehealth software and tailored programming; which provides real time access points of care across the medical system.
We see this work as consistent with the aims of national and state level health care reform as well as mental health parity.
Supporting System Transformation
We are committed as well to developing additional strategies that encourage and support transformation at the practice and system levels. In particular, we are exploring all the means we have to address limitations of the current payment system while simultaneously exploring alternatives to it.
In The Community
“Respect,” “Inclusion,” and “Awareness” are words that serve as a foundation for the Desert Rose commitment to social responsibility. Our community partnerships program is a combination of volunteerism and strategic partnerships with local & rural organizations, and districts.
