  • Communicate with and coordinate medical necessary information/documentation with receiving in-patient facilities or out-patient provider reflecting standards of clinical practice within the scope of professional standards.
  • Complete interpretive/discharge summary.
  • Follow up to ensure transition appointments are kept and help to problem solve any barriers to follow through.
  • Attempt re-engagement efforts towards previously identified disposition plans or offer other alternatives if appropriate.
  • Measure patient satisfaction with disposition process.
  • Assist patient in completing a Safety Plan if suicidal issue is present.
  • Assist patient in completing relapse prevention plan for Substance Abuse &/or Mental Health condition.
  • Identify clinical data needed for dashboard metrics.
