ABSTRACT

The aim of this study is to draw out policy tasks for constructing a system to link the case management of community mental health centers with the total care service for people with mental illnesses, so as to increase efficiency in the use of public resources. The inefficiency of the Korean mental health system can be demonstrated by the average length of stay of psychiatric inpatients. In order to analyze this problem, the outcomes of community mental health centers are reviewed, with a focus on financial management systems. This study makes the following recommendations: First, the broker model of case management should be applied. Second, outcome management, focusing on medicaid finance for mentally ill inpatients should be introduced. Third, the cost of the total care service for mentally ill persons should be paid by medicaid finance.
