Behavioral Healthcare Management


Providing cost containment and a return on investment are benefits to be realized by the employer when implementing Quantum’s  Behavioral Health Management (BHM) services.  As the first step, our BHM program offers centralized diagnostic and referral functions that include identification of the most clinically appropriate and cost effective level of intervention and referral to the appropriate Quantum behavioral network provider.  The BHM component monitors all phases of the treatment process, starting with the initial request for treatment.  Quantum Case Managers assess the necessity and appropriateness of treatment, develop a plan for monitoring care, and approve provider treatment plans with internal protocols and criteria for clinical care.

The Quantum cohesive model of BHM give the opportunity to better determine the depth of clinical services by tracking the level of care needed while monitoring expected outcomes and cost of services. This is achieved by coordinating with the Client organization, Quantum Case Managers and behavioral health network clinicians.
