Acute Care - by SFBHN

Our Acute Care Program

 

In keeping with the requirements outlined in Section 394.9082(10), Florida Statutes (Senate Bill 12), SFBHN has implemented a real-time acute care services utilization (“ACSU”) tracking system for the public receiving facilities currently under contract.

 

The ACSU database is designed to capture data needed for “real time” assessment of the number of acute care beds being utilized daily, 24/7, in all public receiving facilities and all detoxification and addictions receiving facilities under contract with SFBHN.  This real-time utilization data is displayed via the utilization dashboard.

 

The ACSU data is readily and easily made available to our stakeholders to support care coordination, utilization management, and capacity maximization strategies among network providers in light of the emerging expectations regarding the central receiving systems.

 

Key Features
  • Real-time data as reported by each of the contracted acute care facilities.
  • Powered by the proven Knight Integrated Software (KIS) data system.
  • All data is protected via a custom, encrypted 256 bit protocol.
  • Provider specific utilization metrics to best direct need to available capacity.
