Behavioral Health Management Information System
Information About the Behavioral Health Management Information System (MIS)
Since 2008, San Diego County Behavioral Health Services staff and contracted providers have been implementing new information technology to better coordinate client care, perform required State reporting, bill Medi-Cal, Medicare and other payors, and perform a range of managed care functions. In addition, the new system includes an Electronic Health Record to help ensure a continuum of care for behavioral health treatment of vulnerable children, youth, adults, and seniors.
Anasazi, the contractor selected for this project, is a national leader in behavioral health management information systems based in Phoenix, Arizona. In addition to San Diego County, they also operate California systems in Kern County, Napa and Kings View. They also operate management information systems for Harris County, Texas, a county comparable to San Diego.
San Diego County's management information system has been implemented in two phases. Phase I involved tracking of client services, billing and managed care functions. Providers began using Phase 1 of the new system in 2008. Phase II, for scheduling, assessments, progress notes, treatment plans, and a home page for doctors and clinicians rolled out in 2012.
