Workgroup to Focus on Improving Care Transitions for Challenging Patient Populations


  • Hospital emergency department directors
  • County counsel
  • Behavioral health officials


The Sacramento Regional Behavioral Health Task Force has established a new workgroup to develop a process for coordinating the care of patients with developmental disabilities. These individuals are often unable to access necessary psychiatric care due to the complexity of their dual diagnoses. 

Next Steps

The workgroup will invite Alta California Regional Center and other key service providers to work together to determine best practices in coordinating all necessary behavioral health care. This will help expedite discharge from acute care hospitals to the most appropriate settings.
