NIATx process improvement model expands to mental health

Stanley Street Treatment and Resources (SSTAR) is a non-profit health care and social service agency, providing a wide range of mental health and substance abuse treatment services to people throughout the communities of Southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island. After using the NIATx model successfully to improve its substance abuse treatment services, SSTAR expanded process improvement to its mental health services. The result: improved service to referral sources, an increase in the daily census, and an improved bottom line.

“Most of our referrals come from five psychiatric hospitals, and they know what SSTAR DDASS and Dual Diagnosis Detoxification Service is like. By the time they call us, they know that the patient is appropriate for our service and the insurance company as already approved it.
