Tuesday, September 22, 2015, 1 to 2 p.m. EDT — There is a clear and growing body of evidence that supports the integration of behavioral health into the primary care setting. Numerous trials show that integration delivers upon the triple aim, generating a measurable return on investment over time, improving outcomes for patients, and resulting in a high quality experience for patients. Furthermore, health plans, state and national demonstrations, and accrediting bodies are moving in this direction. One example would be the 2014 NCQA Standards for Patient Centered Medical Homes, which require primary care practices to demonstrate some degree of integration in order to be certified.
During this webinar, HMA experts Lori Raney, MD, and Nancy Jaeckels Kamp will provide a step-by-step guide to integration, including key structural and organizational investments, process improvements, and the type of training required to make integration work.
