Behavioral Health Reverse Integration for Care Management Agencies

Nov 5, 2021 10:39:44 AM / by Brooke Kochanski

The integration of behavioral health care into primary care is now widely considered an effective strategy for improving outcomes for patients with physical and behavioral health conditions. Reverse integration of primary care into behavioral healthcare is another form of integration that produces an improved quality of care and patient outcomes.

This workshop will begin with an overview of the reverse integration process and how to implement this new model of care.

Secondly, we will focus on comprehensive, evidence-based primary care patient intake. This section will include best practices for measuring vital signs, exam room set up considerations, and point of care laboratory testing for behavioral health practitioners considering integrating primary care services. All topics are covered through a patient-centered lens.

In the third segment of this workshop we will review key concepts and strategies for building and optimizing integrated health care programs with sustainability as the goal.
