Treatment Bed Finder
Treatment Bed Finder (Bed database)
With the Treatment Bed Finder Chatbot, patients seeking services can book a bed in real time. Mental health and substance use disorder patients can book inpatient beds, outpatient spots, prescribers, detox unit beds, available counselors/doctors taking new appointments.
Our effort is to strength the community based crisis response systems. We are developing and maintaining a real-time, Internet-based bed database to collect, aggregate, and display information about beds in inpatient psychiatric facilities and crisis stabilization units, and residential community mental health and residential substance use disorder treatment facilities to facilitate the identification and designation of facilities for the temporary treatment of individuals in mental or substance use disorder crisis.
Our bed database provides the following information:
- Includes information on inpatient psychiatric facilities, crisis stabilization units, and residential community mental health and residential substance use disorder facilities in the State of Massacusetts, including contact information for the facility or unit.
- Provides real-time information about the number of beds available at each facility or unit and, for each available bed, the type of patient that may be admitted, the level of security provided, and any other information that may be necessary to allow for the proper identification of appropriate facilities for treatment of individuals in mental or substance use disorder crisis
We are building something like this which New York has already implemented.
