Alternate Level of Care (ALC) – A Key Component of Surge Phase II

Alternate Level of Care (ALC) – A Key Component of Surge Phase II

The Champlain Regional Surge Planning Protocol Development: Phase II is intended to aid in the refinement of the protocol’s first version. This project targets the creation of an actionable strategy to improve Mental Health and Addictions (MH&A) Alternate Level of Care (ALC) in the Champlain region to ultimately increase capacity and flow in the inpatient MHA sector.

Addressing ALC is important because it was identified as one of the most influential barriers to flow within in-patient mental health and addictions (MHA) sector in Champlain. Champlain hospitals, both large and small, struggle with moving patients to the most appropriate discharge destination due to a variety of reasons including capacity, absence of options and process issues.
