24-Hour Crisis Stabilization (Rapid Response Team)

Harmony Healthcare’s rapid response team (RRT) is a 24-hour, 7-day per week crisis team. The RRT is physician led and staffed by licensed, trained counselors from a variety of disciplines, including Ph.D.s, LCSWs, CADCs, Nurse Practitioners and MFTs. The RRT meets face-to-face with each and every member in an extreme crisis, as well as members presenting for immediate hospitalization. Once the RRT is notified, the counselor or on call contacts the member within 15 minutes and sets a time for a face-to-face clinical assessment. The assessment can occur in an emergency room, an inpatient psychiatric hospital, intake room, at the work site, or at HHC’s office. Once the assessment is completed, HHC’s staff psychiatrist reviews the medical and clinical data and, in concert with the patient’s treating emergency room physician or PCP, initiates the required treatment. Hospitalized members are seen daily by HHC’s psychiatrist. This hands-on approach enhances the patient’s treatment and encourages effective, ongoing outpatient care post discharge.

After Hours Help Line (Wellplace)

Onsite Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD)

A team will respond to the workplace or disaster crisis to do CISD. CISD is a crisis intervention process designed to stabilize cognitive and affective processes and further mitigate the impact of a traumatic event.

Case Management/Utilization Review

Harmony’s case management process is initiated at the point of first contact with the client. Regardless of the nature of the case, whether it is a crisis or a regular scheduled session, Harmony Healthcare clinicians register the case with the Harmony case management system.

Harmony’s case management process is designed for immediately assessing and managing:

  • client’s stated preference and understanding of the problem,
  • patient acuity,
  • appropriateness of care,
  • timeliness of services,
  • the clinical and financial efficacy of the approach,
  • nature and quality of support systems, and,
  • discharge needs of client, significant others, and referral sources.

All care is managed by the Harmony Healthcare Case Manager. Inpatient care is monitored daily. Outpatient care is assessed in a multi-disciplinary setting and a treatment plan is formulated which identifies the problems, interventions, objectives and goals. At this time a length of stay or proposed frequency and duration of care is determined. The case is then reviewed based on the proposed care plan. In instances where additional care is anticipated, the case is re-staffed and additional care authorized. Case management review includes pre-admission review, concurrent review, discharge planning and monitoring of aftercare. This methodology assures that all plan participants receive high quality, clinically necessary, appropriate, timely care in a cost efficient manner.

Harmony Healthcare prides itself on customer responsiveness. Harmony has the capacity to tailor reports to be specific to the needs of any client/company. Harmony’s’ legendary customer service results in client companies receiving precise data that complements their respective reporting needs.
