Medicaid Drug Therapy Management System for Behavioral Health

About the Project

This project funded by the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration examines strategies designed to improve the quality of prescribing practices for mental health medications among Medicaid enrollees in Florida. The project defines and regularly updates evidence based medication guidelines for the treatment of serious mental illness and emotional disturbances in adults and children. It then implements a variety of broad based as well as targeted interventions to increase knowledge of the guidelines and the extent to which they are considered in the prescribing of psychotherapeuticmedications.
