Adults with mental illness live, on average, 25 years less than the general population. Help our members improve their overall health!  See more

THE STORY:

On average, adults with mental illness die 25 years sooner than the general population. A number of causes have been indicated. One reason is the need for better connectivity between this most vulnerable population and their doctors, including those dedicated to their somatic health.

Omni House plans to create the capability of electronic interfaces with the Baltimore-Washington Medical Center (BWMC), the Anne Arundel County Mental Health Agency (the local CSA), Arundel Pharmacy, the Arundel Medical Group, and possibly the state hospital system. This system will greatly improve the provision of services for our members.

This project aligns itself with the vision and values of the 2008 state mental health plan. The values call for a responsive system (2), with "Information ... readily available for individuals to enter and proceed through the system in a more appropriate and timely manner and the system must be linked to allow for continuity of care."
