The Future of Behavioral Health in Children and Adolescents in New Mexico: Report

 

This report, prepared for the California HealthCare Foundation, examines the current status, challenges, and opportunities for behavioral health information systems, particularly electronic health records (EHRs) and personal health records (PHRs), that support government-sponsored mental health services for children and adolescents in California. It focuses on young people because they are the most diverse segment of the mental health care population in terms of their service needs and the array of provider types that serve them.

  1. I am very interested in this study. When I was Deputy health Director for Physical Health Services in the County of San Diego (1980-96), there were unusually rigid barriers between mental health and physical health from operational, strategic planning, and conceptual perspectives. Because San Diego County had an electronic medical record beginning in 1980 (COSTAR), we were able to launch a nuimber of program processes that were beneficial to Mental Health Services outcomes – including Smart cards.
