Mercy Primary Care is changing the care delivery model and realizing the return on investment with Complex Care Management, Care Coordination, and Integrated Behavioral Healthcare, and Tamra and Steve share their insights and lessons learned from this transition.

          Part I was held on September 15, 2016, and Part II took place on August 21, 2018.
