River Edge Behavioral Health of Georgia provides mental health, substance use disorder, and intellectual and developmental disabilities services that better the lives of those they serve. In early 2022, the agency was ready to apply for CCBHC expansion funding. The CCBHC grant application was complex and the due date was getting closer.

However, the May 2022 due date was approaching fast—and the grant application was no simple matter. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) regularly offers expansion funding to Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs). To qualify for these grants, CCBHCs must meet strict criteria.  When a grant is available, SAMHSA releases a notice of funding opportunity (NOFO). This document asks detailed questions about specific EHR functionality. Applicants need to show how their EHR will meet specific CCBHC requirements.

River Edge still had questions about completing the extensive NOFO document. They needed insight into meeting CCBHC requirements with CareLogic EHR. They also required feedback to ensure their application was as thorough as possible. River Edge turned to Qualifacts’ CCBHC Program Manager for expert guidance.

River Edge received a quick response from Qualifacts’ CCBHC Program Manager and when they met, it simplified many criteria and attestation questions for River Edge. The agency also learned about the ONC-certified features they needed as a CCBHC. This clarity helped River Edge overcome an otherwise intimidating process.

Continued Support Will Help River Edge Drive Growth into the Future.

River Edge had a roadmap for the process and knew where to turn if further questions arose. At no cost to the agency, our CCBHC Program Manager is available to review drafts of complete NOFO applications. This type of expert assistance granted River Edge greater confidence in its CCBHC grant application.

Qualifacts has the technology, platforms, and experience to support any organization’s CCBHC journey.
