Administrative and management issues in public-private collaboration.Behav Healthc Tomorrow. 1995 Mar-Apr; 4(2):25-9.BH
With the growing emphasis on developing public/private-sector collaborations for the provision of behavioral healthcare services to Medicaid recipients, one of the key issues will be clarifying the distinction between provider networks and systems of care. The latter provide a comprehensive spectrum of vertically and horizontally integrated services to targeted populations. Public/private collaborations will also require new and modified outcomes measurement systems and quality management programs, building on what already exists in each sector.
