  • Quarterly Provider Newsletter: Review Best Practice Reminders on Data Entry, Clinical Descriptions and Updating Content

    For this Summer 2021 edition of the North Dakota Under 21 Newsletter, the program team explores several timely best practice topics that may be of interest to you, including a reminder about entering accurate information into the system, providing clear clinical descriptions, and ensuring that medical and contact information is up to date

    BEST PRACTICES: Assessment Tips & Reminders

    1. In order to ensure an individual's historical episodes are all connected, it is essential that the correct demographic information be entered into the Maximus referral system. Please also make sure to complete all custodian information for each episode, as Maximus uses this information to mail outcome letters. Failure to provide either of these could delay an episode from being completed.
    2. Be sure to provide clear clinical descriptions pertaining to an individual's behavior and mood, which should act as justification for the particular level of care being requested. This justification is vital for a clear understanding of current level of need. Always include a timeline of events resulting in admission or need for continued stay.
    3. Don't forget to update diagnosis and psychotropic medications, and also provide updated facility phone and fax numbers as applicable.
