HMA Authors Report on Digitally Driven Integrated Primary Care and Behavioral Health

This week, our In Focus section highlights an article, Digitally Driven Integrated Primary Care and Behavioral Health: How Technology Can Expand Access to Effective Treatment, published in the Current Psychiatry Report, co-authored by HMA Principals Lori Raney, MD, and David Bergman, MPA, as well as John Torous, MD, and Michael Hasselberg, M.S., Ph.D. Together, they addressed how technology solutions can be utilized for more widespread implementation of effective integrated primary care and behavioral health. The article deconstructs the four core principals of effective integrated care, team-based care, evidence-based care, measurement-based care, and population-based care, to identify the critical tasks. Several of the tasks related to these core principles are adaptable to technology.
