As the landscape of healthcare service delivery continues to change, more organizations understand that crisis intervention must be part of an overall strategy. CIC’s statewide network helps decrease provider costs by eliminating improper utilization of emergency rooms, hospital admissions, diagnostic tests, and primary care physicians. By advocating better utilization by intended populations, CIC is working to change the outlook for behavioral healthcare services and for those seeking emotional support in Louisiana.
Not only does crisis intervention work, it solves problems before they happen, reducing the cost in emergency and various healthcare services.
The Crisis Intervention Center offers a full program on integrating telephonic crisis intervention services into municipalities, hospitals, universities, and other healthcare organizations. Now more than ever, all players in the healthcare continuum need to be informed and ready for integration. With our guidance, we can help you reduce costs and improve outcomes by incorporating these programs into your service offerings.
