Is your Electronic Health Record CCBHC-Ready?


CCBHCs can benefit from the features and functionalities offered by a comprehensive EHR platform

The impressive growth in Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs) highlights the need for behavioral health and human services EHRs that can effectively integrate a variety of providers and services, capture and report on key metrics, and enable providing services remotely.

The CCBHC demonstration program model launched in 2017 with 66 clinics across eight demonstration states. As of March 2021, 340 CCBHCs were in operation across 40 U.S. States, Guam, and the District of Columbia. That’s 400% growth in four years.

All CCBHCs provide a comprehensive range of evidence-based behavioral health services directly or through referral to Designated Collaborating Organizations (DCOs). Almost all (about 93%) provide services outside of the physical clinic space.

The comprehensiveness of CCBHC services, evidence-based care requirements, and the need to provide services remotely require a sophisticated Electronic Health Record (EHR) Platform that enables organizations to:

  • Manage person-centered treatment planning and coordinate care with local primary care and hospital partners.
  • Deliver integrated, coordinated care based on evidence-based practices and report on quality metrics.
  • Provide services in homes, schools, jails, homeless shelters, and other locations outside of the clinic.
