Being a trusted, valued partner is important to BHS.
Regulatory Compliance is foundational to BHS services and our team of professionals are trained to meet the unique needs of the nursing home environment. Services provided by BHS support compliance with Resident Assessment needs, Comprehensive Resident Centered Care Plans, Quality of Life, Quality of Care including Trauma-informed Care, Behavioral Health Services and Pharmacy Services.
Preadmission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR) - a federal requirement to help ensure that individuals are not inappropriately placed in nursing homes for long term care requires that Medicaid-certified nursing facilities:
• Evaluate all applicants for serious mental illness (SMI) and/or intellectual disability (ID)
• Offered all applicants the most appropriate setting for their needs (in the community, a nursing facility, or acute care settings)
• Provide all applicants the services they need in those settings.
BHS will help develop appropriate plan of care for all Level II clients and participate in routine screenings at the facility's request.
Quality Measures on many levels, are directly impacted by the mental health of long- and short-stay residents. Use the BHS team of professionals to assist in positively impacting your facility Quality Measures. Not just regarding antipsychotic medications, but more broadly functional improvement or decline, and pain are areas that mental health professionals can help manage.
Outcomes are measured in many different ways; but we are all seeking improved quality of life for our residents. BHS has tools to measure quantifiable outcomes to support value-based reimbursement models, clinically integrated networks and accountable care organizations. Our own EHR platform allows for structured and ad hoc data mining in support of quality monitoring and outcomes.
