What Timberlands RSN is and does Annual Report Priorities by Contract and Client Services and for 2013 by Functional Area
Regional Support Networks (RSN), as Prepaid Inpatient Health Plans (PIHP): Provide mental health services through contracted licensed providers agencies (Community Mental Health Agency, CMHA) For children and adults who are eligible Medicaid-covered enrollees. Specifically adults who are acutely mentally ill, chronically mentally ill, or seriously disturbed and children who are acutely mentally ill, severely emotionally disturbed, or seriously disturbed. Per Washington Revised Code of Washington (RCW) : The regional support network shall have the flexibility, within the funds appropriated by the legislature for this purpose, to design the mix of services that will be most effective within their service area of meeting the needs of people with mental disorders and avoiding placement of such individuals at the state mental hospital. Regional support networks are encouraged to maximize the use of evidence-based practices and alternative resources with the goal of substantially reducing and potentially eliminating the use of institutions for mental diseases. Mental health services are also provided, as funds allow, to non-Medicaid clients. Any person regardless of funding source is eligible for Crisis Services. What is an RSN?
Timberlands Regional Support Network (TRSN) is: A quasi governmental entity, Created through an Interlocal Agreement, Into a legal partnership, between Lewis, Pacific and Wahkiakum Counties.

Provider Priorities The concern whenever contrasting these two areas is that the hope should always be that the work under the contract supports the work with the client. Unfortunately that is not always the case. Both are very important to consider and its important to try to reconcile the two as best as possible. Contract Access (First contactstandards do not include client choice. Trying to find balance between client choice and contract. Clients do not always understand the importance of accepting appointments right away vs. next week) Hospitalization follow up Hospital Recidivism Evidence Based Practice implementation Special Population consults (quality vs. timeliness is something the contract does not take into consideration. Hope new WAC will allow for better results) Jail Services making services meaningful (real engagement vs. meeting contract language with completing certain number of assessments, etc.) Upgrade LOC guidelines (these are not particularly meaningful because the standards seem arbitrary and do not take into account fluctuating care needs for clients. Seems to be a structure designed to justify itself) Paperwork (Developing way to meet requirements without becoming overly burdensome) Client Services Access (first contact and follow up)clients that do not show up for intakes, clients that do not show up for follow up, better manner of using crisis services (non- crisis services option) Exiting services developing better plans to transition out of care Decreased dependency Focusing clients on getting better as a solution not as another problem Crisis services -being client and community friendly (as much as possible) Hospitalization making hospital stays and transitions meaningful experiences. Focusing Care Management toward clients developing skills to meet basic needs (workload necessitates expediency vs. quality) Preventative services Education of community and clients Improved coordination efforts Primary Care Providers (PCPs) physical health Community Partners Family QUALITY in everything we do
