Chief Information Officer

MSHN’s been working with the regions Information Technology Council members to build a process to get all authorization data related to acute care services for FY18, including defining the services that make up acute care (CPT codes, HCPCS codes): inpatient, partial hospital, crisis residential, and continuing stay reviews.  Thanks to Community Mental Health of Central Michigan for providing the script to automate this process.

MDHHS posted a Behavioral Health-TEDS status report that identifies MSHN as a top submitter for Substance Use Disorder encounters with BH-TEDs as well as Mental Health encounters.  Congratulations to our CMHSP partners for assisting MSHN in maintaining a high performance.
