Some things — just a few — changed in 2020. Are those changes here to stay, or are we only having a moment?
What does the behavioral health landscape look like post-COVID?
On this episode of Netsmart CareThreads, we talked about the future of behavioral healthcare post-COVID with , President and CEO of the National Association of County Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities Directors and the National Association for Rural Mental Health, and an adjunct professor in the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
Here's what we discussed with Ron:
- “Modernizing” virtual care to engages all of a person’s providers to create a more integrated care environment
- Closing the chasm between community-based and institutional care settings to create a “center” while also respecting the recovery movement
- Embracing consensus-built (not top-down) data systems
- Artificial intelligence systems that support the provider...help them decide more quickly on appropriate meds or interventions
- Better use of good apps that are evidence-based
- We have to change behavioral health training practices
- The ultimate goal is recovery and the well-being of the persons we serve
