OpenBeds is a comprehensive behavioral health capacity management and referral technology solution. The solution helps health systems, payors and state and county governments create trusted treatment networks to improve support and care delivery to patients in need—improving public health.
For providers, OpenBeds replaces inefficient manual search, communication and reporting functions. It facilitates rapid digital referrals and transfers, and fosters collaboration among medical and mental health providers, criminal justice organizations, homeless services, crisis lines, 2-1-1, social services, and substance use disorder (SUD) treatment programs—closing the loop on care.
The solution accomplishes this by providing real-time visibility of treatment provider availability, evidence-based service capacity, secure two-way digital provider communication, data aggregation and analytics, clinical decision support, and even crisis management.

“Real-time online treatment referrals and acceptances are an important step forward in making our behavioral health system more responsive for the people we serve. Because of the Delaware Treatment and Referral Network, health care providers, in consultation with individuals and their families, won’t have to spend hours on the phone trying to find out if a treatment slot of bed is available. Faxed paperwork won’t get misplaced. And a bed won’t be given away to someone else while an individual seeking treatment tried to get to a treatment location.”

The current approach to behavioral health crisis management is piecemeal in many communities. Far too many individuals fall through the cracks as a result. The cost to communities, families, and the broader public is just too great. Developing a comprehensive and integrated behavioral health crisis solution is critical to closing gaps in care.

Through OpenBeds, Treatment Connection can be made available to the community at large. Treatment Connection is an evidence-based assessment and referral site which enables those seeking mental health and SUD treatment or their loved ones to find nearby, state-vetted treatment providers, evaluate the type of care they need, and submit anonymous or non-anonymous referral inquiries to providers.
Treatment Connection’s website features the Addiction Treatment Needs Assessment (ATNA). ATNA’s 13 consumer-friendly questions were developed with the American Society of Addiction Medicine and are used to assess the risk and severity of a person’s addiction to provide guidance on the most appropriate level of care.
Caring for infants
Sadly, a baby is born with opioid withdrawal every 15 minutes in America per the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Fortunately, the federal Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) was established, in part, to look after these infants. It requires health and human services providers to develop a plan of care for all babies born with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome.
In support, we developed our Safe Infant Plan of Care solution to help providers adhere to CARA requirements and, in turn, ensure safety and well-being as the infants recover. The solution enables access to—and tracking of—mandatory forms related to care, provides analytics to measure activity and compliance, and much more.
