Continuity of Care Advisory Panel
OutPatient Services Programs Stakeholder WorkGroup
Behavioral Health Integration Stakeholder Workgroup
Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics -- CCBHCs
The Department has also established four stakeholder workgroups that will help support the work of the broader advisory panel. Each workgroup will examine research, data, and reports related to one of four barriers to care
social, clinical, legal, and economic. The workgroups will then provide recommendations to the advisory panel about ways to better address barriers, prevent interruptions in treatment, and improve health outcomes.
Co-chairs will be selected
based on their professional background and expertise
to manage the workgroup meetings. Co-chairs will be responsible for:
Setting the agenda for workgroup meetings;
Distributing materials to workgroup members for review;
Facilitating discussion; and
Working with staff to produce a final report.
Members of the public are invited to serve on the stakeholder workgroups. Each workgroup will have the opportunity to present data, reports, and recommendations to the advisory panel. DHMH will provide staff support for each workgroup.
Below is a brief summary of the four workgroups:
The economic work group will examine economic barriers that may limit access to care,
such as housing, income, and health coverage;
The social workgroup will examine demographic factors
race, immigration status,
language, culture, and gender
that may be barriers to care;
The legal workgroup will research existing federal and Maryland Laws/regulations that
impact the state’s behavioral health system and provide an analysis of the laws of other
states that have been enacted to improve continuity of care; and
The clinical workgroup will examine factors such as: service delivery, medication, quality of
care, types of evaluations, and inpatient/outpatient treatment that may limit access to care.
