Reducing Hospital Readmissions for Clients with Addictions
Certificate of Attendance:
Currently funded by SAMHSA, mPower provides mobile patient opportunities for wellness, empowerment, and recovery to an identified cohort of high risk/high need veterans between the ages of 18-55, who have a diagnosis of substance abuse along with multiple physical and psychiatric comorbidities. The specific goal of this project is to reduce the target population’s utilization of addiction crisis, emergency medical, and emergency psychiatric services through the use of technology-based interventions. To date, this project has resulted in a 192% decrease in readmission rates, from an average of 3.9 readmissions to an average of 0.3.
