Patient Information Sharing Framework

MeHAF’s Access to Quality Care (A2QC) program was established to help health care and social services providers implement transformation of care delivery in ways that are informed by and address the needs of individuals who are uninsured.  As new payment and quality improvement strategies are put into place for all patients, the program sought to ensure coordinated, high quality services for uninsured individuals and those with particular barriers to care such as homelessness, mental illness, and substance use disorders.  One of the A2QC projects, the Mercy Hospital-led “Medical Neighborhood,” developed new ways of sharing patient data to support a new, patient-centered and holistic approach to delivering a broad array of services to some of Portland’s most vulnerable residents.

Mental Health Status and Access to Health Care Services for Adults in Maine

Access to health care services is critically important to individuals’ health and well-being, yet Maine residents’ ability to obtain needed health care or maintain an ongoing relationship with a personal doctor are not uniform across different population groups. In Maine, access to care may be affected by factors such as financial resources, education, age, race/ethnicity, and other characteristics. Individuals with mental health conditions or poorer mental health status may be at heightened risk of access barriers because of more limited financial resources or other challenges in obtaining needed services. Using the Maine Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) for the years 2012-2014, this brief examines disparities in access to health care services for Maine adults based on self-reported mental health status.
