Mind Springs Receives Innovation Award for Metricovery™ Program

Congratulations to Mind Springs Health for receiving the Innovation at Work Award from the National Council for Behavioral Health!

Covering 10 counties and 23,000 miles, Mind Springs Health provides comprehensive behavioral health care to individuals living on Colorado’s Western slope. Providing services to rural and frontier communities often requires creative solutions, especially when it comes to workforce shortages; thus, the phase-based care program known as Metricovery was developed. Dr. Jules Rosen, the organization’s chief medical officer, and Michelle Hoy, their therapist clinical leader, developed Metricovery to fully engage individuals in treatment in one week or less; quantify symptom severity at each “touch”; manage resource utilization according to client need; and create open access for all clients via weekly walk-in clinics, delivering a multi-disciplinary approach. Since its launch, Metricovery has served 400+ clients and reduced wait times and crisis services, while increasing favorable clinical outcomes for patients. Learn more about the program HERE.
