Integrating Behavioral and Mental Health into Primary Care and PCMH 2.0
September 27, 2016, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Charles Coleman, PhD, CMPH, PHM Solutions Lead, Behavioral & Mental Health Programs, and Karen Handmaker, MPP, VP, Population Health Strategies, IBM Watson Health. Engaging people in their health and healthcare is a universal challenge – and even more so for people with behavioral health diagnoses. Now, with value-based incentives, new sources of data and expanded care teams, advanced Patient Centered Medical Homes (PCMHs) are integrating behavioral and physical healthcare to make a difference for individuals and populations. Dr. Coleman and Karen share insights and a business case for behavioral health integration. In this session they discuss understanding the imperative for integrated behavioral and physical healthcare, new instruments to assess and manage behavioral health in PCMH, and how to integrate behavioral health services in PCMH practices.
