Health Homes at CODAC

codac-centerSMART Management, Inc. would like to recognize and congratulate our esteemed customer/software partner CODAC Behavioral Healthcare for receiving a 3-year CARF accreditation for their Health Homes programs. Health Homes was established in 2010 as a part of the Affordable Care Act and aims to facilitate coordinated care for people with Medicaid who have chronic conditions such as addiction.

This program was developed as a state plan amendment and supported through a pilot project by the Center for Medicaid Services. Health Homes providers bring together:

  • Comprehensive care management
  • Care coordination
  • Health promotion
  • Comprehensive transitional care/follow-up
  • Patient & family support
  • Referral to community & social support services

In a recent Addiction Professional article, CODAC’s CEO Michael Rizzi was interviewed about the significance of integrating care with Health Homes, “The role of the health home is to coordinate, integrate and collaborate with primary care and specialty care physicians so that opioid treatment patients can enter the medical care system, be treated with respect and be encouraged to follow up.”

With five convenient locations, CODAC is uniquely positioned to provide a wide range of outpatient recovery, treatment and prevention services to those struggling with the challenges of substance abuse, gambling disorders, behavioral healthcare issues, and other addictive or abusive behaviors.
