Project Information

Minnesota Hospital Association Mental and Behavioral Health Data Collection Pilot

To better understand how often and why Minnesotans are unable to access mental health care in the most appropriate settings, the Minnesota Hospital Association (MHA) commissioned a pilot study to track the number of 'potentially avoidable days' mental and behavioral health patients spend admitted to inpatient hospital units.
