Mental Health Provider Data Exchange (MHPD)


The Mental Health Provider Data Exchange (MHPD) is a web-based application designed to support an accurate and timely master provider directory of the New York State public mental health system. The MHPD enables local mental health authorities and providers to verify or request changes to program information they are required to submit to the Office of Mental Health (OMH). This master provider director can be used by local mental health authorities to help evaluate access to services across their counties and regions.

Review Process

Program Administrators at OMH Central Office, OMH Field Offices, and local mental health authorities are the key parties who participate in the MHPD approval process. Each request prompts the MHPD application to send e-mails to the requestor and other key parties notifying them of the request and need for review. The key parties are able to correspond with each other within the MHPD application.

When an administrator approves or denies a request, MHPD sends a notice of the action and the administrator’s comments to each of the parties. If a Change Request, Administrative Action (AA), or Easy Prior Approval Application (EZ PAR) is denied, the facility may resubmit it with additional information for further review. Using MHPD, the facilities can assign a Primary Facility Contact to receive approval and denial notifications.
