Psychiatric Bed Registry
MDHHS has been collaborating with stakeholders over the last year to implement several of the workgroup recommendations. One of the recommendations called upon the department to “…work with providers and payers to establish a web-based resource to identify available inpatient psychiatric beds by gender, acuity, age, and diagnosis.” A psychiatric bed registry is a web-based resource where providers and payers can search for available psychiatric beds in near-real time.
MDHHS is currently working on exploring options for the development of the psychiatric bed registry. MDHHS will post more information on this page in regards to the development of the psychiatric bed registry in early 2019.
