Our Care Coordination team works with the New York State Health Homes Program to help adults meet their health and wellness goals, and live self-directed lives within their community.
The Health Home Team Supervisor oversees a team of direct care staff charged with coordinating all aspects of care for assigned clients. Clients present with mental health needs, complex medical conditions, co-occurring substance use disorders, and a wide array of social service needs. In addition to overseeing client-centered care, the Team Supervisor has additional goals of reducing avoidable health care costs, specifically preventable hospital admissions/readmissions and avoidable emergency room visits, and improving client’s health outcomes by addressing primary medical, specialist and behavioral health care through contractual arrangements with appropriate service providers. The Team Supervisor is a driving force behind comprehensive, integrated services, ensuring direct care staff conduct a comprehensive assessment of clients and facilitate access to the full range of medical, behavioral health, substance use, social and psychosocial services in the community, in a timely, efficient and effective manner.
Clients are provided care coordination services in their home and in the community. The program applies a person-centered and recovery-oriented approach to care, empowering the individual to be active participants in their healthcare journey. The Team Supervisor also maintains health home networks with primary medical and specialty practitioners and mental health providers, substance abuse service providers, community-based organizations, managed care plans, emergency rooms, hospitals, and residential/rehabilitation settings to ensure coordinated, and safe transitions of in care for clients who require transfer to/from various levels of care. The Team Supervisor monitors daily activities of staff, ensuring the scope, frequency and duration of client encounters are adequate to meet client needs, and substantiate monthly billing of core services.
