124 - Integrating Behavioral Health Care into the Patient-Centered Medical Home: The Who, What and Why

‐ Apr 23, 2013 4:45pm

The prevalence of behavioral health (BH) concerns in the community, coupled with the fact that most do not receive treatment, creates a large and expensive unmet need in the patient-centered medical home model (PCMH) of care. This session explores the rationale for integrating behavioral health into the PCMH, the benefits of integration, and how to build this into your practice.
