Built with you in mind

The Behavioral Health Acuity Index (BHAI) is a clinical decision-support solution that provides a rapid and accurate measure of patient acuity within inpatient settings. The BHAI was created by the nation's leading behavioral health experts to improve patient care, reduce safety risks, and to address the increasingly acute status of mental health patients.

Problems Addressed

Our nation’s mental healthcare faces a series of escalation problems including:

    1. An increasing demand for inpatient services
    2. Increasing acute symptoms in patients presenting to our ERs and hospitals
    3. A growing shortage of nurse and providers to meet this patient demand,
    4. A critical shortage of inpatient beds,
    5. An increase in costs for services where hospitals lose an average of 34 cents for every dollar spent,
    6. The absence of a model to facilitate higher reimbursement
