Abstract

The Pittsburgh Metropolitan Area’s current need for psychiatry and behavioral health services are growing. Allegheny Health Network’s Psychiatry and Behavioral Health Institute has the opportunity to expand its outpatient service line to accommodate same-day appointments coupled with a short-term patient care model. The new model could create an access point for patients who would otherwise not have access to care. Viability for an expansion at AHN can be supported by contextualizing current issues in mental health delivery, conducting an internal readiness assessment and market scan, designing a care delivery model, and defining success for the expansion. These assessments support investment in offering same-day appointments coupled with a short-term care model. AHN’s Psychiatry and Behavioral Health Institute’s outpatient expansion supports the public health need for mental health wellbeing and clinical access to care.
