Healthcare Partners and HelpPRO Team Up to Develop Innovative Tool for Region
Story Number is : 082416110
PROVIDED
The Regional Behavioral Health Collaborative

The Regional Behavioral Health Collaborative, under the leadership of Heywood Healthcare (Heywood and Athol Hospitals) and HealthAlliance Hospital, in partnership with other healthcare, mental health and community service organizations in the region, has developed an online resource tool, the North Central Massachusetts Community Resources Finder, for all providers and clients in North Central Massachusetts and the North Quabbin Region.

The North Central Massachusetts Community Resources Finder (powered by HelpPRO) is the single regional database that is the main resource used by the hospitals in this region to refer clients to services. It is positioned to be the main tool for all providers and clients in the region to use to access resources for services. The North Central Massachusetts Community Resources Finder uses complex and dynamic search functions to offer users the ability to identify services providers that best meet their needs or preferences. With resource listings in primary care, mental health and behavioral health, community and social services, and therapy and support groups from throughout the area, the North Central Massachusetts Community Resources Finder makes finding services easier, quicker, and more effective for providers and their clients.

Established in 1995, HelpPRO is recognized nationally as an extremely effective therapist finder. HelpPRO was founded to improve the public’s access to the services of mental health clinicians and organizations. Today, HelpPRO is one of the oldest, most comprehensive therapist and mental health services finders on the Web and a valuable tool to match people with mental health needs to local mental health services.

Funding for this project, in part, was provided by the Health Policy Commission. There is no cost to be listed on the North Central Massachusetts Community Resources Finder. Eligible providers and organizations can qualify for a free listing through October 2017. This resource tool is intended to increase services and care in our region, reduce costs and decrease hospital visits by providing appropriate wrap around services to patients and clients by providing access to a whole new level of information and services. Visit the North Central Massachusetts Community Resources Finder at www.HelpPRO.com/CRF
