BHPMS Vendor Services

The BHPMS serves nearly 200 free-standing inpatient psychiatric facilities across the United States and Puerto Rico. Operating since 1999, BHPMS services have expanded from meeting data reporting requirements to using the data in everyday practice to inform the quality of care.

Encapsulated in performance and quality improvement, the major activities of the BHPMS vendor services include:

  • Analytic reports that delve into differences across facilities and opportunities for improvement

  • Several comparison group rates for benchmarking performance

  • Inpatient Consumer Survey (ICS) to capture the voice of the consumer

  • Translating measure rates into clinical and administrative practices

  • Vendor reporting to The Joint Commission and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
