What Separates BRE From Other Mental Health Processes For Care
Do-It Yourself Programs
Dedicated and professionally trained leased staff, paid according to billable hours (100% efficiency) and telemedicine phone calls overcome any office closures.
Front Desk, Medical Assistants, Other Staff, no proper interaction system and takes time away from primary encounter interaction including ties up exam rooms.
During annual screen--applicable to all patients, additional ICD 10, LCD and NCD qualifier questions are asked to help determine applicable inclusion.
Generally, up to Provider to figure out, no guidance system or documented method other than reviewing possible diagnosis codes from E & M encounters.
Patient Participation Approval & Benefits
All patients qualify for participation via an annual screening. Based on their results, a patient may qualify for frequent screenings, especially those patients on opioid management. BRE will create order forms within your EMR for participation.
Patient compliance is low and complaints are high. Staff is not correctly trained to deal with this. Recurring assessment gathering becomes impaired because both staff and patients are reluctant to participate. No action plan or follow up.
Reduction of Costs
Hospitalizations and residential care needs are reduced as a consequence of earlier detection, tracking, monitoring and implementation of treatment action plans that are supportive and productive for patients and their local communities and social services.
Mostly results in increased costs for insurance and tax payers as rarely can any meaningful change in patient care be quantified nor can it be objectively supported or documented.
Patient progress is tracked and compared through robust software features. This includes graphical displays of assessment and other data over time. Helps determine continued need or cessation of program.
Essentially-none. Archived historical tests can be retrieved individually but without robust comparisons of data or notes over time or across multiple patient records using a one window view.
Streamlined process with documented patient progress performed by leased staff. Significant increases in production.
May identify patient conditions missed during E & M. Lacks follow through; minimal production increase for time.
