Our BHI-ICARE PRINCIPLES
We act in ways that are honorable, truthful, and principled. We utilize impartial and honest standards to make decisions and take actions, every day. We own up to our mistakes and take actions to correct them. In our business, integrity is mandatory, not optional.
We succeed when members succeed. We put our members first, no matter what job we hold, no matter whether we work alone or as part of a team. We take the time to identify customer needs by asking questions and concentrating on what the customer is really saying. A customer (member) is anyone, including a coworker, to whom we have a responsibility to help succeed.
We take personal responsibility. We accomplish what we promise on time and on budget. Part of accountability is pulling your weight as part of a team and actively sharing information and effort.
We treat people with dignity and consideration. We are diverse as people and professionals, yet our success depends on our mutual trust and teamwork. We honor different cultures, backgrounds, and beliefs recognizing that this diversity builds strength in our team. We are strongest when we are respected by our colleagues and encouraged to contribute to our highest capabilities.
We insist on quality, we are an organization of quality. We encourage the introduction of improvements to the way things are done. Even as we challenge each other to the highest level of achievement and to go the extra mile, we also understand that that the quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence.
At BHI we promote Integrated Health Care. Integrated Care is a whole-person approach to health care that includes communication and collaboration between the patient’s health professionals. It is a team approach to addressing all health needs, including behavioral health needs, and strives to provide as many services as possible at the patient’s Health Home. Whether that is getting behavioral health care at a primary care practice or receiving primary care at a behavioral health facility, the patient’s needs are the primary focus.
Behavioral Healthcare, Inc. recognizes the high quality of care for all diverse communities depends on inclusion and accessibility of services. BHI values the importance of ensuring cultural competency principles are integrated throughout the organization. BHI’s primary goal is to meet the needs and expectations of all members and families we serve with a robust network of cultural competent providers. Over the next year BHI’s cultural competency goals include:
- Provide health care services that respect individual health care attitudes, beliefs customs and practices of members related to cultural affiliation
