BHI Training To Primary Care Practices

The Health Policy Commission is offering technical assistance at no cost to primary care practices on behavioral health integration (BHI) starting in March 2017. HPC’s PCMH PRIME program recognizes practices that have achieved NCQA PCMH status and meet 7 out of 13 behavioral health integration standards.  Practices that commit to being on the “pathway to PCMH PRIME” are eligible to participate in the March program. For more information on the program and pathway, please visit here.

The technical assistance program will provide individualized support and is provided by a team of clinical experts from Health Management Associates. It features the following, over a six-month time period:

•        Practice coaching support for all practices;

•        Two day-long learning collaborative sessions, focused on learning the foundations of the Collaborative Care Model, which is key to successful and sustainable behavioral health integration;

•        Optional webinars on specific behavioral health integration skills and topics, recorded for viewing at your convenience; and

•        Optional regional knowledge-sharing meetings, to enable peer-to-peer learning and best practice sharing.
