Karen Nelson, M.D. and Michael Carbery, who oversee the Brooklyn Health Home, the co-second place winning project of the Healthcare Informatics Innovator Awards Program, join Gabriel Perna in this edition of the Healthcare Informatics podcast.
Led by Maimonides Medical Center, the Brooklyn Health Home brings together a consortium of approximately fifty medical, mental health, and social service organizations, payers, and a labor union, to create a "mental health home" for seriously mentally ill patients, who typically are on Medicaid and have schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, bipolar disorder, or severe depression.
Nelson, the Vice-Chair of the Department of Population Health and Executive Director of the Brooklyn Health Home and Carbery, the Brooklyn Health Home CIO and Assistant Vice President of HIE, project’s beginnings, how the technology involved with care coordination has evolved over time, and what is next for mental health care coordination.
