Financing and Service Delivery Integration for Mental Illness and Substance Abuse

Financing and Service Delivery Integration for Mental Illness and Substance Abuse

Arizona State University’s School for the Science of Health Care Delivery and School of Criminology and Criminal Justice will integrate rich data sources from Arizona’s medical, mental health, and criminal justice systems in order to explore opportunities for better coordinating services for persons with mental illness and/or substance abuse disorders. Using interactive system dynamics modeling and network analysis methods, this study will identify how people and dollars move between and within the state’s medical, mental health, and criminal justice systems. Interactive simulation models informed by stakeholder input will then explore how changes to funding streams and service delivery models can produce improved health and social outcomes.
