Delivering more proactive care for patients.
The mission of the Mental Health, Drug & Alcohol Services Board of Logan and Champaign Counties (MHDAS-LC) is to plan, fund, and evaluate alcohol, drug addiction, and mental health treatment, prevention, education, and consultation services for their county residents.
The Mental Health, Drug and Alcohol Services Board of Logan and Champaign Counties (MHDAS-LC) desired to develop a more holistic view of Logan and Champaign County residents, especially those experiencing a behavioral health crisis. They wanted to better allocate resources and use data to inform their decision-making.
Data sharing conversations with Logan and Champaign county area hospitals and providers
User testing & user interface design
Data strategy workshop with MHDAS-LC board staff members
The following opportunities were identified:
Gain access to provider data
Improve data standardization and searchability
Ascend and MHDAS-LC have partnered to enhance the continuity of care for crisis services through:
Ad Hoc Analysis & Reporting
Static reports on treatment, prevention, and patterns of safety net use
Crisis Notification System
An appropriate crisis team member is alerted about an individual’s overdose or behavioral health crisis in the hospital
Custom Dashboard Development
This includes data aggregation, analytics and data visualization, defined specifically by MHDAS-LC
“We are excited to have the opportunity to partner with Ascend’s expertise to take the many pieces of data that we have access to locally, and put it together in a way that points out gaps, needs and priority areas where our limited resources can be most impactful in serving our communities.”
