  • When using the cloud, keep security in mind
    • Authors: Julie Miller
      Abstract: File-sharing services can streamline the way therapists manage, store and share case files, but they also present security concerns As a behavioral healthcare organization, you and your staff have a lot of files to manage. When you meet with patients, you record and graph data, then analyze it to make clinical decisions.  Not only do you keep files for each of your patients, but you must also maintain back-up copies and keep track of when you share them with other analysts, technicians and therapists. And that’s just the clinical information—the billing information is yet even more data to keep track of.   read more

  • Pharma gifts: Is there a free lunch'
    • Authors: Terry Stawar
      Abstract: That free pizza wasn’t nearly expensive or good enough to make me want to prescribe "Expensivexa"   My first boss in community mental health had a favorite saying: “There’s no such thing as a free lunch.” But is that really true?  For many years pharmacy company representatives have been providing physicians and nurses in our organization catered lunches. I believe our organization has tried to informally ban this practice a few times in the past, but it seems to keep returning as new pharmaceutical company representatives are hired and new medications are  promoted. read more

  • Medicaid considering IMD-exclusion alternatives
    • Authors: Julie Miller
      Abstract: Many believe the IMD exclusion is a ridiculously outdated provision that needs to change, but change is going to be a long time in coming Under an Affordable Care Act (ACA)demonstration program, Medicaid is testing payment models for inpatient psychiatric treatment in several states. The mental health treatment community certainly sees it as a step in the right direction. But behavioral health providers’ ability to bill Medicaid in larger inpatient facilities is still years ahead. Providers have never been able to bill Medicaid for treatment in psychiatric facilities with more than 16 beds.  And before 1988, they couldn’t even bill Medicaid for treatment in smaller facilities. read more
