What is the problem that needs to be addressed? Please describe how it is related to mental health.
This is another breakout of the Patient-Centered Medical Home functionality: Centralized Medical Records. This one is very obvious, but because patients are split between numerous referral networks, their medical records are also split. Please see the references on medical/mental inequities and disparities. This medical record splitting is likely a strategy used by everyone to get better care and a void the inequities/disparaties

Why is this a concern for Orange County? What can Orange County and other counties learn from this project?
Obvious – PCMH function breakout to support the learning associated with what a PCMH is.

What is currently being done to resolve this problem in our county and throughout the United States? If applicable: Is it working; why or why not?
Unknown.

What is new or different about this project idea? Please describe how this differs from what is already being done (Question 6). Please list any research that was done on this topic.
Nothing new or different. Just recognizing the inequity/disparity and knowing the consequences of this reality.

What is the project idea? Please describe how this project will operate.
