Level of Care Utilization System

(LOCUS/CALOCUS)

"Beyond assisting in service intensity placement decisions, these instruments (LOCUS and CALOCUS) can be used by systems to identify service gaps and to aid in projecting resource needs. The instruments provide guidance in treatment and recovery planning and help to ensure the best value for intended outcomes. They are useful for communication with managed care entities and to meet requirements for "least restrictive service alternatives" for Olmstead compliance. “

- Wesley E. Sowers, M.D., Director, Center for Public Service Psychiatry, Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic

Provides presentations, handouts and resources on a range of important topics: from acute care, ambulatory care, recovery, social justice and systems of care amongst others.
