Network Improvement and Accountability Collaborative (NIAC)

NIAC is an interdisciplinary team comprising both CBH staff and other representatives of the DBHIDS network, thus allowing for a consistent approach to monitoring of behavioral health services across funding streams. NIAC re-credentials in-network providers through comprehensive site reviews; these include the Self-Appraisal, living reviews, clinical chart reviews, facility tours, interviews with executive and direct care staff members, discussions with individuals receiving services, staff file reviews, review of written policies, and observations of general operations.

NIAC uses the Network Inclusion Criteria (NIC) to guide provider re-credentialing processes.
