FY2017 IN REVIEW
It was in 1966 that a small group of passionate community leaders came together with a vision to form what in 1974 became “Red Rock”. Red Rock is one of the largest Community Mental Health Centers (CMHC’s) in Oklahoma serving a total of 25 counties with over 550 employees, 14 outpatient offices, 7 community housing facilities, a 82 bed residential facility for women with substance use disorders and their children (Jordan’s Crossing), and 4 Crisis Stabilization Units, three for adults and one for children. In FY 2017, Red Rock served over 10,000 individuals and families.
What a year 2017 has been for Red Rock! Beginning April 1, Red Rock, along with select CMHC’s from Oklahoma and 7 other states embarked on a history making journey by transforming into a Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic under the Federal Demonstration Program outlined in the Excellence in Mental Health Act passed by Congress. This allowed an unprecedented time of growth for Red Rock as we added almost 100 new positions, greatly expanded and strengthened our service array, and moved further into a value based purchasing model of reimbursement.
We greatly expanded our 24-hour mobile crisis response for adults and youth and implemented the use of technology including iPads to allow quick access from the field to Licensed Mental Health Professionals to deescalate crisis and keep consumers in their communities. We forged new relationships with service providers for better care coordination for our consumers resulting in fewer hospitalizations, lower heath care cost and better outcomes, and we increased our services to youth almost 20%.
Red Rock was able to continue building on the growth from the previous year and expand the number of prescribers in our Medication Assisted Treatment Program for those with Opioid Use Disorders in an effort to combat this heartbreaking epidemic sweeping our country. We provided evidenced based best practice treatment training for staff on treating veterans and bridged existing gaps to better serve this population. We improved outreach to those who may become lost in the system to provide a better safety net. We began a new and exciting program called NAVIGATE, a national best practice model designed to offer intensive treatment for those individuals and their families who are experiencing first time psychosis. We continued growth in our Health Teams and became more adept at population health management to improve patient care and improve clinical outcomes in behavioral and physical care.
Health care continues to experience rapid change, and perhaps behavioral health care even more so. For FY 2018, we anticipate continued transition into integrated care, population health management and value based reimbursement models. However, the core of what we have always done, and what we will still do today is empowering individuals and their families to live the most productive, healthy life possible while instilling hope for the future.
