WASHINGTON, Aug. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Mozzaz Corporation announced today its collaboration with Project Transition in the launch of TennCare's Systems of Support (SOS) model at the HCBS National Home & Community Based Services Conference in Washington DC.
Delivering proactive and cost-effective quality care that delivers positive outcomes does not occur in a vacuum. Efficient, coordinated care begins with connecting and engaging people who need behavioral health services and their families through an ongoing support system which empowers them to achieve the highest possible quality of life.
With TennCare's Systems of Support model, the intervention, stabilization and prevention services provided by Project Transition's Systems of Support teams and powered by Mozzaz mobile health technology, individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities who are experiencing significant behavioral health challenges in Tennessee can now receive continuous coordination of care across services, caregivers, health providers, family members and the community ANYTIME/ANYWHERE.
Project Transition utilizes the Mozzaz secure, digital health platform to deliver TennCare's Systems of Support model, to keep individuals, their families and health professionals connected wherever they may be, to provide responsive, high quality and cost effective care for some of the States most vulnerable citizens. TennCare's groundbreaking Systems of Support model is supported by staff from Project Transition.
"Our goal with the SOS model is to empower people with I/DD to live the lives they want in their communities. Having the right technology helps us achieve that, said Patti Killingsworth, Assistant Commissioner, Chief of LTSS, Tennessee. "We want to know if what we are doing is making a difference in people's lives."
Project Transition has been recognized as a leader in promoting sustainable recovery for those adults with mental illness through it's person-centered, community integrated services and supports. Individuals, 18 and older, diagnosed with psychiatric and co-occurring substance abuse disorders, are introduced to a holistic approach to support and recovery with an emphasis on recovery and living as independently as possible in their communities. The focus for Project Transition is more than just mental illness intervention, it's helping the person who is a "member" of their treatment team to become more independent by building a stronger sense of self through a more connected network of friends and community.
"Mozzaz makes it easy to keep our care workers and clients connected in real-time for more positive outcomes. We've seen a drop in cases requiring unnecessary psychotropic medication intervention and an increase in member's social connectedness to the community," said Luke Crabtree, JD, MBA, CEO of Project Transition. "Mozzaz has allowed us to interconnect with diverse networks without interruption to service; as we mature in our model we anticipate future conversions to be delivered just as smoothly."
Mozzaz features a real-time, interactive solution used by individuals under care to help them with their daily needs and personalized care and safety plans. The Mozzaz mobile platform provides connectivity to their care teams, compliance to care plans and proactive response to behavior support to help reduce the escalation of crisis events and negative episodes of behavior. From monitoring to messaging, care workers are accessible for individualized care. The Mozzaz solution also supports scheduled notifications and provides secure messaging which can be managed by the care professionals of Project Transition.
Mozzaz is proud to be a part of TennCare's Systems of Support model. As Rini Gahir, Chief Business Development Officer at Mozzaz Corporation recently stated "we are delighted to be part of the innovative work and vision of TennCare and Project Transition. We look forward to further collaboration as TennCare moves forward with their vision of improving the lives of Tennesseans."
