During the pandemic and the social and economic upheaval of recent years, there has been a dramatic increase in demand for mental health services. The stigma had already been declining, and now, the available mental health services are increasing.
Some patients are now seeking treatment for the first time, while others are continuing decades of treatment with more coordinated services. Many do not travel this journey alone. The support provided by family, friends and their carers is critical – for some, a carer’s records have provided the only continuity of care.
Travis Dalton, general manager of Oracle Health, and Danny Gladden, director of behavioral health for Oracle Health, talk about their personal experiences in this area and how Oracle Cerner and Oracle Health can work together with health systems and clinics to ease the administrative burden of caregivers to provide better care for behavioral health patients.
