Sovereign Health has fashioned its treatment programs to deliver high-quality care for substance use and behavioral health issues; the company has always based its treatment plans on MBC to ensure clinical efficacy and the best outcomes for all patients. MBC is the practice of periodically monitoring clinical progress and obtaining patient feedback on specific measures to improve the quality and effectiveness of treatment, and to deliver care that is tailor-made to meet each patient’s individual needs.
Dr. Tonmoy Sharma, Chief Executive Officer of Sovereign Health, spoke at the “Accreditation Workshop,” alongside The Joint Commission. Dr. Sharma’s presentation will be in two parts: “Using Measurement-Based Care to Enhance Substance Abuse and Mental Health Treatment,” and “How to Build a Company into a National Brand.”
About Sovereign’s success, Dr. Sharma says, “Measurement-based care is an invaluable tool to measure, maintain and grow the quality of care provided by your company. At Sovereign Health, quality of care, customer service and taking care of our staff are our highest priorities.”
According to the Department of Health and Human Services, the U.S. is in the midst of an addiction crisis. “When I looked at the mental health and addiction scene, there were high-end treatment centers and county facilities, but nobody was looking to provide treatment for Middle America. Sovereign Health is a group of physicians and psychologists that have been trained and have practiced in the behavioral health field. We’re very interested in making sure that we are held to the standards of both assessment and treatment in this industry. We want people to have confidence when they come here for treatment,” says Dr. Tonmoy Sharma, M.B.B.S., M.S.c., on PBS program American Health Journal.
