Memorandum of Understanding Between Inpatient and Outpatient
To help organizations strengthen their care transitions process and close the gaps in care, the Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention - with funding from Universal Health Services - developed this sample Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for Inpatient and Outpatient Behavioral Health Care providers based on the recommendations in the Best Practices in Care Transitions for Individuals with Suicide Risk: Inpatient Care to Outpatient Care. The MOU provides a structure for developing agreements between Inpatient and Outpatient Behavioral Health Care providers focused on improving care transitions for people with a history of suicide risk. The MOU provides example language, caveats to consider, and best practice strategies for high-quality care transitions. This automatically downloads when you click the Download Resource below.
