OhioRISE Workgroups

Development of the OhioRISE services and major components of the program have been championed by four Workgroups – CANS and Care Coordination (CCC), Mobile Response and Stabilization Services (MRSS), Intensive Home-Based Treatment (IHBT), and Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility (PRTF). In August 2021, OhioRISE commenced a new set of Workgroups focused on implementation and operational items for the program. The OhioRISE team in coordination with stakeholders, state agencies, Aetna Better Health of Ohio, and the Child and Adolescent Center of Excellence (CoE) identified the following new Workgroups:

Systems of Care & Care Management Entities (CMEs) Workgroup – This Workgroup discusses cross-system initiatives, the roles, responsibilities, and relationships across state and local partners, and how the CMEs will deliver care coordination using a system of care approach through interactions with multiple entities.

Business Practices Workgroup – This Workgroup focuses on how providers will contract with Aetna (the OhioRISE plan), the requirements to contract as a CME, how the provider network will be built, and other areas of oversight.

Service Development Workgroup – This Workgroup combines the four current services Workgroups (IHBT, MRSS, PRTF, and CCC) to understand how services interlink while addressing training and workforce issues.

Outreach & Engagement Workgroup – This Workgroup develops strategies to engage with youth and families across the state and local cross-system partners while acting as a feedback loop to strengthen communication tools and strategies to shape the OhioRISE program. The Outreach & Engagement Workgroup works closely with the other Implementation and Operations workgroups to disseminate information more broadly.
