Collaborative Care Model

What is Collaborative Care Model (CoCM)?

Collaborative Care Model (CoCM) is a specific type of integrated care developed at the University of Washington to treat common mental health conditions in medical settings like primary care. It is evidence-based, cost-effective, and is widely agreed upon as it leads to significantly better clinical outcomes, greater patient and provider satisfaction, improved functioning, and reduced healthcare costs.

How CoCM Works?

The Collaborative Care Team is led by a primary care provider (PCP) and includes behavioral health care managers, psychiatrists, and frequently other mental health professionals all empowered to work at the top of their license. The team implements a measurement-guided care plan based on evidence-based practice guidelines and focuses particular attention on patients not meeting their clinical goals.

Over the past decade, the integration of behavioral health and general medical services has been shown to improve patient outcomes, save money, and reduce stigma related to mental health. Significant research spanning three decades has identified one model – the Collaborative Care Model – in particular, as being effective and efficient in delivering integrated care.
