CalMHSA has brought 23 counties together to implement a semi-statewide electronic health record (EHR) — a step toward creating a vision of wholistic county behavioral health data aggregation and interoperability. The initial phase launched in July 2023 and involves over 37% of the state’s Medi-Cal population. Additional counties are expected to join in 2024.
CalMHSA is leading the initiative to streamline and expand the way data is collected and managed through current county EHR systems. As the furthest reaching EHR designed for behavioral health care, this system:
- Reflects the needs of county clinicians and direct service staff
- Tells a complete story about the individuals in their care
- Integrates CalAIM changes
