The System Access Manager will work closely with behavioral health providers, Missouri Department of Mental Health, Missouri Hospital Association, Appriss Health (vendor), and other stakeholders to help support the implementation of the OpenBeds solution platform in Missouri. OpenBeds is a comprehensive behavioral health capacity management and referral technology solution. The solution helps health systems, payors and state and county governments create trusted treatment networks to improve support and care delivery to patients in need-improving pubic health. For providers, OpenBeds replaces inefficient manual search, communication and reporting functions. It facilitates rapid digital referrals and transfers, and fosters collaboration among medical and mental health providers, criminal justice organizations, homeless services, crisis lines, 2-1-1, social services, and substance use disorder (SUD) treatment programs – closing the loop on care. The solution accomplishes this by providing real-time visibility of treatment provider availability, evidence-based service capacity, secure two-way digital provider communication, data aggregation and analytics, clinical decision support, and even crisis management.
