Multiple rules and regulations exist across operational and service delivery requirements. Organizational compliance at the practice and operational levels ensure quality care and protection. The risk to not being compliant jeopardizes patient care, in terms of wellness and trust, as well as increased liability, in terms of fines and penalties. SAE provides assessments of compliancy to practice and legal standards, develops corrective action roadmaps and plans, and monitors quality improvement practices to support sustained changes. Our policy and audit expertise in mental health, addiction, and integrated care are needed assets with projects involving chart reviews, licensing acquisitions and MPHAEA.

License Acquisition

SAE provides consulting services related to the development of licensed New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH) and Office of Alcoholism & Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) treatment programs in the following categories:

  • Inpatient;
  • Crisis;
  • Stabilization and Withdrawal;
  • Comprehensive Psychiatric Emergency Programs (CPEP);
  • Residential;
  • Outpatient Clinic;
  • Partial Hospitalization; and
  • Personalized Rehabilitative Oriented Services (PROS).

SAE has the experience and expertise in the development of these licensed programs, and the preparation and submission of the required applications. SAE addresses all required elements of the application so that it addresses the OMH and OASAS standards for approval.

These applications will include a Needs Assessment based on the behavioral health needs of the population in the proposed service area, and will include a description of the Functional Program of the proposed programs.
