Asking for help with a mental health condition is a big step in a person’s life, and meeting them with timely, quality care and prompt, proper follow-up after discharge is essential to their care journeys.
Thankfully, a dedicated bridge care program can help support health systems via a virtual bridge clinic that deploys a measurement-based model to fill short-term gaps in behavioral health care across the continuum.
In this piece, we’ll cover the following topics:
- How health systems are approaching their referral queues
- How health systems are currently impacted by these challenges
- Connecting patients with the right care
- Five ways effective bridge care positively impacts your patient populations
- How bridge care works in practice
