The Alliance of Community Health Plans (ACHP) invites our Learning Community to discuss the innovative approaches that not-for-profit, community-based health plans are using to integrate primary care and behavioral health on Wednesday, January 18, at 1:00 pm. The presentation and discussion of innovative examples of integrating primary care and behavioral health features Dr. Judith Feld (Independent Health), Dr. James Schuster (UPMC), and Dr. Mason Turner (Kaiser Permanente), and focuses on:
UPMC Health Plan is integrating primary care and behavioral health with programs such as co-locating behavioral health specialists at primary care sites, placing care managers within primary care practices to assist with care coordination, and reverse co-locating primary care physicians in behavioral health settings.
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.
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.
