Bailit Health has assisted over 150 clients since 1997 to improve methods for purchasing or regulating health and human services. A partial listing of these clients can be found below, as well as examples of the types of work that we have conducted for them.
Center for Health Information and Analysis
Assist the Task Force on Behavioral Health Data and Long Term Stays to develop recommendations on how to improve access to and transparency of behavioral data and recommendations on reducing unnecessary long–term stays in emergency departments, inpatient settings, and continuing care facilities.
Bailit consulted to state staff, facilitated Task Force meetings, developed recommendations on long–term stays leveraging pre–existing state efforts, developed a behavioral health performance dashboard to lead to transparent information on behavioral health system, and worked closely with Task Force members and key stakeholders to develop final recommendations. Bailit's work culminated in the drafting of the Task Force's final report that was submitted to the legislature.
Massachusetts Department of Public Health
Then–Governor Patrick declared a public health emergency in regards to opioid use in the Commonwealth and created a task force charged with developing recommendations to spend a $20 million appropriation.
Bailit facilitated Task Force meetings and several focus groups to understand the opioid crisis in the Commonwealth, identify gaps in care and coverage, and make recommendations for how to utilize the proposed funding. Bailit subsequently conducted a similar project for Barnstable County, Massachusetts.
Massachusets Department of Mental Health
Assist the Task Force on Behavioral Health Integration to develop recommendations on how to increase the integration of primary care services and behavioral health services in the state of Massachusetts.
