Individuals with a serious mental illness (SMI) often present with complex co-morbid conditions as well as social, occupational and legal challenges that may exacerbate symptoms and lead to over utilization of Emergency Departments (EDs) and crisis stabilization services.
LSF Health Systems, a behavioral health managing entity overseeing a network of more than 60 provider organizations spanning a third of the state, will share best practices and case studies from its community-based care coordination program which boasts a remarkably low recidivism rate (3-5%). The presentation will focus on effective strategies to engage this population, address social determinants of health, increase medication compliance, and improve engagement with primary care providers. Learn what sets LSF Health Systems apart and the critical role that community partnerships play in their unprecedented success.
