Latest News from AIM

Mental health social worker order is now LIVE in the AIM common orderset.

Please use the new “Onsite service referral - Mental Health Social Work” order to refer patients to all mental health resources (psychiatry, geriatric psychiatry, psychology, collaborative care for depression).  There is a free text box in the order where you should explain relevant details about the referral.  Upon receiving the referral, Jesus reviews the chart, speaks directly with each patient to understand their mental health needs, and helps the patient to establish care with an onsite provider, NYP provider, or a community based organization.  He follows up with the patient to make sure that they have engaged in care.  He then communicates with the referring provider via SHM with questions or to relay the disposition.
