In a recent U.S. News and World Report “Best States” ranking, Nebraska jumped six spots to #7 on the list overall. In this report, Nebraska scored #5 in mental health. Former Director Division of Behavioral Health, Scot Adams said “When I came into the office, I set a goal of Nebraska being a top 5 state in behavioral health and to see it happen this month is something the Division of Behavioral Health should be proud of.”
Nebraska Division of Behavioral Health has worked hard with the consumers, providers, public stakeholder, and partners to make this happen.
The Nebraska Department of Behavioral Health launched its’ Centralized Data System in May 2016 to have an infrastructure to efficiently collect, organize, access, and analyze data from behavioral health Regions and provides within the state. This system has also automated the authorization of services based on dynamic questionnaires at intake.
Nebraska Division of Behavioral Health has also released its 3-year Strategic Plan for 2017-2020 focused on the Triple Aim of Health Care to improve the health of populations, improve the per capita cost/affordability, and improve the consumer experience of care. For the full report, click here.
