OpenBeds® of Nebraska

Thank you for your interest in utilizing OpenBeds, the state sponsored closed-loop behavioral health referral network. Please reach out to us if you have any questions.

What is OpenBeds?

Behavioral Health Capacity Management and Referral Solution

Behavioral health referrals, typically consisting of multiple calls, faxes or emails, are time-consuming, inefficient and frustrating for both patients and providers.

OpenBeds replaces this manual and outdated process for providers by providing one application to refer, share and communicate bed availability. By providing real-time facility availability, two-way digital communication, data analytics and clinical decision support, OpenBeds helps providers get patients the care they need, sooner.

Key Benefits…

  • Real-Time Availability Dashboard
  • Filterable Treatment Services
  • Digital Referral Process


Interested in giving feedback to improve our product?

If you are ready to onboard, please complete the following:

Step 1



Once received, we will present your application to the state for approval.


In accordance with HIPAA compliance, a BAA is part of our agreement, as there is the likelihood that personal health information will be included in the referral. If your organization prefers to use its own BAA please send us a copy for review. We also have a process to review any red lines or proposed changes your organization would like us to consider to the Subscription Agreement.


If you have any questions/edits regarding the agreement, please email [email protected]

No Cost Agreement

Step 2



After completing the subscription agreement you will receive a confirmation email from the onboarding team stating if your request has been accepted to join the network. If your request is accepted  you will receive a configuration form via email to create your account within the OpenBeds platform. Click the button below to preview the configuration form.


For support filling out this form, contact the Nebraska Onboarding Associate at [email protected].
