Behavioral Health NYC IPA recognizes the need to assure timely and appropriate responses to requests for services so in order to expedite referrals from our strategic partners, BHNYC utilizes an electronic referral management system called AristaMD. AristaMD contains a proprietary algorithm that collects the type of service requested, the client’s home address, their insurance, and any language requirements, to route referrals to the BHNYC member agency that can best serve their needs. AristaMD also allows for the secure, 2-way communication between the referral source and the BHNYC agency where patient health information and status updates can be exchanged. A wide range of hospitals, primary care practices, community-based organizations and governmental agencies have successfully utilized AristaMD to refer clients in need of quality behavioral health services.
