Behavioral Health Quality Measures

Consecutive days on antidepressant therapy have been found to increase effectiveness. Allowing for a member’s appropriate follow-up care to monitor for clinical worsening and suicide risk is essential when starting a new antidepressant.

Follow-Up After Hospitalization
Visiting the hospital for mental illness or intentional self-harm can be overwhelming. Research suggests that timely follow-up care after discharge, can help the member transition back to home, work, or school and can help providers detect early post-hospitalization reactions and medication concerns.
Initiation and Engagement of Substance Use Disorder Treatment (IET)
Many people living with a physical health condition also have co-occurring mental and substance use related disorders and may not realize it or are not seeking help. Together with early detection and a whole person, integrated treatment approach we can help our members stop or reduce harmful substance misuse, improve health outcomes and overall quality of life.
