Why Behavioral Health Services are Important

WF216319 BH Wheel why BH is important

Reduce Behavioral Health Spend

Inadequate facilities and services are resulting in behavioral health patients staying in the ER too long and driving suboptimal financial performance.


ED Throughput Issues

Behavioral health patients are interrupting the flow of other patients through the ER – creating a bottleneck and serious patient treatment challenges.


Capture Existing Patient Population

Hospitals are likely discharging a material number of patients who originate in their ERs to other facilities or alternative settings to then be treated.


Improve Patient Care

Providers looking to develop new facilities/enhance management of existing space to improve patient care in the behavioral health space.


Population Health Management

Behavioral health services are necessary in today's environment for a provider to effectively serve its population – behavioral health issues lead to additional health issues.


Lack of Appropriate Care Setting

There is typically a lack of appropriate inpatient/acute service providers to support the ever-increasing demand.
