LA Care eConsult Project

by James Heller 10. July 2012 07:22
A project is now underway in Los Angeles that will improve the speed and efficiency with which Los Angeles residents receive medical care.  LA Care started the eConsult project in preparation for the expected increase of new patients at local clinics due to health care reform and other program implementations.  Results from a successful preliminary pilot project suggest that eConsult will result in reduced wait times and fewer unnecessary face-to-face visits with specialists.

Tarzana Treatment Centers is pleased to be participating in the eConsult project.  It is another way we remain on the cutting edge of healthcare information technology.

Technology in healthcare is advancing with big leaps since the turn of the century.  With greater security, telemedicine is fast becoming a necessary tool for health care providers.  For example, store-and-forward data transfers allow for simple and secure communication between providers.  LA Care’s eConsult project uses store-and-forward technology via a web interface for Primary Care Providers (PCP) to exchange patient information with specialists.

Instead of giving a patient a direct referral to a specialist, the PCP sends an eConsult request to the specialist.  The specialist is notified of the request and can  ask further questions of the PCP and send treatment information back to the PCP or recommend that the patient come in for a visit with the specialist.  This is  an over-simple example because some specialties will require more back and forth communication between the PCP and specialist..    In many cases, though, patients will no longer need to wait for an appointment with a specialist to get input from a specialist about their condition..

An  18 month preliminary pilot project conducted by LA Care resulted in an approximate 60% reduction in appointment wait times.  About half of the specialty referral requests were resolved using eConsult rather than requiring a face-to-face visit with the specialist.  Specialists were able to respond quickly, and PCPs felt better equipped to address their patients’ specialty needs.  More details about the project can be found at this link:

Medicare and Medicare Advantage Services

by James Heller 6. July 2012 08:23
Tarzana Treatment Centers accepts Medicare and Medicare Advantage for a variety of healthcare services.  Primary medical care is certainly a priority for seniors to maintain good health.  We also cover medically necessary treatment for drug addiction and mental illness

The senior years can be very enjoyable.  This time of life also comes with many changes, both personal and environmental.  The environmental changes include relocation, loss of friends and family, financial concerns, and even the amount of medical care you need.  What this means is that you need to take care of yourself and remain aware of how environmental changes are affecting you.  We aim to help you through these issues so they don’t become the focal point of your senior years.

Mental health concerns arise for seniors because of the changes they face.  Obviously, when a long-time spouse or friend passes on there is grief to deal with.  Depression can accompany the grief even for the strongest of characters.  When the spouse who handled the finances and other concerns passes, it can leave the surviving spouse with great anxiety.  Sadly, too many seniors suffer loneliness due to infrequent visits from family members.

Drug addiction can seemingly come out of nowhere for seniors.  Individuals who rarely had a cocktail may be prescribed a painkiller for chronic pain.  Initially, this is fine and the pain is relieved.  But when they feel another type of relief, like an escape from the feeling of loneliness, they may continue to use the drug in increasing amounts and become addicted.  If their doctor refuses to continue filling the prescription, they may even resort to using illegal drugs.

For seniors suffering mental health or drug addiction disorders, or co-occurring disorders, physical health can quickly become a casualty.  It is important that you be treated for these problems right away so you don’t suffer needless medical problems.  

We staff quality mental health professionals who will handle your case with sensitivity in a confidential setting.  Our variety of treatment methods for drug addiction, including medical detoxification, counseling, and Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT), provides for a tailored treatment plan that will help you get back into life.

Convenient Vivitrol Treatment

by James Heller 2. July 2012 15:03
Motivation for recovery can change in an instant for alcoholics and opiate addicts.  They’ll say they want Vivitrol treatment to reduce cravings and help them focus on treatment.  The addict brain then does everything it can to change that decision.  Because of this, Tarzana Treatment Centers makes every effort to speed the process from decision to Vivitrol injection.

According to the California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs (ADP) in the excerpt below, a collaboration of effort is required to treat a patient successfully with Vivitrol:

-- Begin External Content --

“Collaboration between substance abuse treatment providers and primary care physicians and clinicians on behalf of alcohol-dependent individuals is key to obtaining the best treatment outcomes for this chronic, relapsing disease.”

-- Source: http://wwwtest.adp.ca.gov/Pressroom/News/Focus/June2012/INDEX.html#feat1 --
<Read the entire article for details about Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) when you finish this>

Patients must be assessed for Vivitrol treatment by qualified medical personnel.  Tarzana Treatment Centers’ alcohol and drug treatment program has licensed medical professionals on staff daily.  This minimizes the time between decision and assessment.  Every step like this toward getting the actual injection helps a patient to resist thoughts suggesting to not go through with the decision.

Vivitrol is available by prescription only, which is the next step toward injection.  Our daily staff of medical personnel includes licensed prescribers.  This minimizes another possible waiting period, and may even eliminate it if the assessor and prescriber is the same person.  The only step left is to receive the Vivitrol injection, and we keep a stock ready for new patients.  

Collaboration between providers is easy at Tarzana Treatment Centers because they all work in the same facility and use the same software to track patient care.  Nobody can promise that you will get a Vivitrol injection the same day you make the decision, but we make it possible.

Integrated Medicare Covered Services

by James Heller 2. July 2012 08:02
Retirement is a time in life when seniors can relax, travel, enjoy family, or anything else they want or have the means to do.  Along with this milestone comes the human condition of aging.  When positives and negatives mix in this way, it’s always a good idea to minimize the negatives.  Taking care of your health, the physical and the mental, needs to be a priority so the golden years shine.

Tarzana Treatment Centers accepts Medicare for medical and mental health care services, so you can enjoy those later years of life.

All through life we are told to take good care of ourselves so we can live long and be healthy.  Exercise and a balanced diet in adult years can minimize medical health issues for seniors.  Even so, our bodies deteriorate over time and we can be more susceptible to illnesses as we get older.  So seniors need to pay regular visits to a physician so these problems don’t overshadow the good times.

Even if you are in good physical health, though, events that come with aging can cause mental health to suffer.  Depression and anxiety might be caused by the loss of loved ones, the need to relocate, or financial issues, for example.  Seniors will often deny that mental health issues exist because they view them as a weakness, having been mentally stable all of their lives.  If their physician refers them to an outside mental health professional for therapy, they are likely to decline.

Tarzana Treatment Centers understands the sensitive nature of senior mental health problems, and we can help you to feel more comfortable about them.  Our physicians are trained to spot symptoms that may indicate mental health issues, and can provide quick referrals to one of our mental health professionals.  This saves you time, travel, and the headache of added paperwork.  You can also rest assured that your treatment is completely confidential and handled under one roof.

Another valuable benefit is that your health professionals work together and collaborate on treatment plans for you.  You can be confident that we will provide you with the most effective health care for all of your needs.

Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles provides a full array of health care services including adult and youth alcohol and drug treatment.  We specialize in treatment for mental health and substance use disorders, and have two primary medical care clinics in the San Fernando Valley and Antelope Valley.  If you or a loved one needs help with alcohol dependencedrug addiction, or co-occurring mental health disorders, please call us now at 888-777-8565 or contact us using our secure contact form.
