IdeaCrew to review, evaluate, and recommend healthcare improvements to psychiatric hospitals for the Maryland Department of Mental Hygiene

ELLICOTT CITY, MD, December 6, 2017 — IdeaCrew, Inc. announces a healthcare consulting contract award for the State of Maryland Department of Mental Hygiene (MDMH).  The project involves a comprehensive study of all state-operated psychiatric hospitals, supporting MDMH’s initiative to improve quality of clinical care, patient safety, operational procedures and policies, and training of staff.

IdeaCrew’s consultants will visit all major facilities, conducting focused staff interviews.  The team will collect and review documentation, statistical data, policies and regulations.  Subsequent analysis will determine strengths of each facility and policies and practices, which may become standard across the hospital system of care.

The visits and data review are expected to yield recommendations that hospital system leadership may use to introduce changes that improve the overall quality of clinical care.
