Modeling Staffing Needs

Many state mental health agencies and centers for the developmentally disabled struggle with how to organize, schedule and staff facilities and community based programs to meet the diverse treatment needs of the individual patients and consumers while also complying with federal mandates.  To help clients address this challenge, Berkshire Advisors works with them to set expectations for the level and type of care patients and consumers should receive and then develops staffing models to determine how the number and mix of staffing should be adjusted as the needs of patients and consumers change over time.
