The CMT Advantage

"Improving behavioral health through the power of clinical expertise and advanced technology."


Our Capabilities
CMT’s capabilities and expertise in behavioral health and information technology combine to help payers and providers improve care while lowering costs. By aggregating, analyzing and displaying disparate data – medical, behavioral, diagnostic and pharmacy – CMT assists with:

  • risk stratification
  • care coordination
  • care transitions
  • provider communication
  • care management
  • quality improvement; and
  • performance measurement.

CMT’s visual display of analytics, via a web based portal, provides a holistic and integrated view of patient data with clearly identified care action paths. CMT’s rules based engine and analytic display helps to:

  • prevent hospital readmission
  • reduce emergency room use
  • improve adherence to critical health medications
  • increase use of evidence based medicine; and
  • address disparities of care for complex needs populations.

CMT’s powerful yet flexible technology is customized for the payer and provider to track key metrics relevant to the customer. Standard and customized report capabilities are included and end users are supported through CMT’s training and collaboration. 

Who We Are

Care Management Technologies (CMT) is a behavioral health analytics company that delivers actionable information to payers, administrators and clinicians in order to improve quality of care and reduce costs.

Our award-winning clinical heritage grew out of our seminal work developing best-practice guidelines for providing quality care to patients with severe mental health disorders.

CMT’s analytics and decision support tools aid clinical and financial risk analysis and the management of a population. With CMT decision support tools, payers and providers are able to identify and target high risk consumers in order to monitor and improve health status while managing costs.

CMT is the behavioral health data analytics partner for the first-in-nation behavioral healthcare home initiative for Medicaid beneficiaries with behavioral-medical comorbidities in the State of Missouri. CMT has a demonstrated record of both clinical and financial impact, including reductions in ER visits and hospitalizations by up to 25% and an average annual savings per intervened patient of up to $1500 in pharmacy and services costs.

With our behavioral health clinical and predictive analytic expertise, CMT uses data analytics, trend identification, predictive analyses, and care tracking to support and enrich patient/provider monitoring functions that:

  • improve health care outcomes
  • support integrated models of care such as health homes and ACOs
  • lower costs
  • enhance patient engagement in care; and
  • support disease management registry maintenance.

Care Management Technologies’ behavioral health clinical and predictive analytic expertise are the foundation for a powerful and flexible information technology platform allowing payers and prescribers to deliver health care interventions that improve the lives of individuals with physical and behavioral health conditions.

CMT Provides Analytics Engine to Canadian Study of Reducing Inappropriate Prescriptions

Care Management Technologies is the analytics engine behind a recently released Canadian randomized control study evaluating the impact of a mailed educational intervention to reduce potentially inappropriate prescribing of sleeping pills and benzodiazepines.   In a randomized study of the program conducted by the Manitoba Centre for Health Policy, it was found that doctors who received CMT’s educational packages swiftly and significantly reduced potentially inappropriate prescribing for sleeping pills and benzodiazepines, a type of sedative medication that includes Valium-like drugs. These drugs are often prescribed for off-label uses and have considerable health risks, so a reduction in their inappropriate use is good news for the health of Manitobans.  

Jeff Onyskiw, Director of the Manitoba Drug Management Policy Unit, believes the program has a far greater impact for Manitoba than the statistically significant results for the control group: “To have completed a randomized control trial study of this magnitude, across an entire province of 1.1 million people is rare. The findings showed that a program such as Comprehensive NeuroScience™ of Canada (CNSC/CMT) has fast and sustainable impact in improving the quality of prescribing for psychotropic medications.”

Praise for CMT’s Clinical Decision Support of IDD Populations

"The wonderful thing about CMT's informatics system is it is capable of aggregating data and you can get any kind of report you need, including performance specific reporting such as SAMHSA clinical guidelines to help inform clinical decisions. We are so excited... it will help us with our pharmacology questions and, without going through endless paperwork, we can determine which of the people that we support has not had an annual physical, etc. ... I cannot imagine trying to create a health home without access to CMT...."
