Integrating Behavioral Health and Primary Care (Webinar)

January 18, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The Alliance of Community Health Plans (ACHP) invites you to join them on Wednesday, January 18 at 1:00 p.m. EST to discuss the innovative approaches that not-for-profit, community-based health plans are using to integrate primary care and behavioral health.

Click here for registration.

Join them and learn how:

  • Independent Health has fully integrated behavioral health consultants within nine patient-centered medical homes, resulting in high patient satisfaction and significantly increased use of screening rates for mental health and substance abuse. More than 5,000 unique patients were seen within a 24-month period.
  • UPMC Health Plan and the UPMC Insurance Division are integrating primary care and behavioral health with programs that support co-location of behavioral health specialists at primary care sites, place care managers within primary care practices to assist with care coordination and reverse co-locate wellness nurses in behavioral health settings. Through these and other programs, UPMC has enhanced the quality of life for participating members, lowered readmission rates and increased adherence to treatment recommendations.
  • Kaiser Permanente’s evidence-based collaborative care approach to depression treatment helps adult members who have been newly diagnosed with mild-to-moderate depression and who have started an antidepressant. Data suggest that program participants have significantly lower depression levels compared to similar members, as well as higher rates of antidepressant adherence.
