PRINCETON, N.J. & MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ODH, Inc., a leading provider of behavioral health technology solutions and services, today announced that the South Florida Behavioral Health Network, Inc. (SFBHN) selected Mentrics to improve the linkage of its mental health, substance use and social support services with jail diversion programs.
ODH’s Mentrics, a leading-edge behavioral population health management solution using select IBM technologies, transforms the management and economics of behavioral healthcare by delivering comprehensive and predictive insights, enabling a collaborative approach among key stakeholders.
The platform aggregates available health data, including behavioral and physical health services, criminal justice data and other social determinants of health from currently fragmented sources into an innovative data architecture. Mentrics users have data and advanced behavioral health analytics available to them in an intuitive interface, including behavioral health and physical health risk scores and notifications of opportunities to improve care.
The South Florida Behavioral Health Network helps children and adults in Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties who have mental illness and substance use disorders. Research shows that individuals with mental illness are three times more likely to be incarcerated rather than be in a mental health facility. SFBHN has developed a coordinated system of behavioral health care designed to provide access to care and excellence in the delivery of behavioral health services. To respond to the needs of the population it serves, SFBHN has been particularly active in supporting jail diversion programs that serve as an alternative to incarceration.
“We want to ensure all individuals living with behavioral disorders in South Florida have access to the treatment they need, and that requires sophisticated and powerful tools to help us identify those most at risk and in need of services,” said John Dow, President and CEO, South Florida Behavioral Health Network. “We are confident that Mentrics will help us achieve our goal of coordinating the delivery of high-quality care.”
“We are pleased to expand our long-standing commitment to SFBHN and the underserved population dealing with mental illness and substance use disorders,” said Michael Jarjour, President and CEO, ODH. “ODH fully supports the mission of reducing unnecessary incarceration for individuals with behavioral disorders.”
