Care Coordination is an administrative function, not a service. Mental Health and Substance Use (MHSU) Care Coordination activities involve identifying a person’s needs, then coordinating and linking the individual to behavioral health services and supports.
The goal of MHSU Care Coordination is to oversee the individual’s continuum of care. Activities may include managing and stretching limited resources, as well as assuring the best care possible to achieve the individual’s service goals.
Care Coordination staff can also provide consultation to clinicians both within and outside of Partners’ Provider Network regarding alternatives and creative approaches to care.
How is MHSU Care Coordination Different from Case Management?
Care Coordination is not a service; however, there are individual contacts to assure connectivity to needed services and supports. Care Coordination does not replace the role of the provider.
Enhanced Services that provide Case Management as part of the service are:
- Intensive In-Home
- Multi-systemic Therapy
- Community Support Team
- Assertive Community Support Team
