This webinar offers primary care providers an introduction to Collaborative Care education and the Collaborative Care model (an evidence-based model to identify and treat patients with depression and anxiety in primary care). In over 80 randomized controlled trials, Collaborative Care was found to be more effective than care as usual in primary care settings. Collaborative Care has also been established as a more cost-effective way to manage treatment in primary care. Participants will learn about the patient-centered and evidence-based care practices of Collaborative Care treatment.
This informational webinar offers primary care clinicians and practice stakeholders an introductory look into foundational considerations for selecting models of integrated behavioral healthcare to best serve a target patient population. Participants will learn how to define integrated care and utilize a conceptual framework to direct service selection and effective care delivery. We will discuss integrated models commonly utilized in the United States, with emphasis on Primary Care Behavioral Health (PCBH) and Collaborative Care Model (CoCM). Using a real-life narrative example of cross-model integrated care delivery, participants will explore advantages and pitfalls to selecting care models for a given practice environment.
Dr. Hunt will present on the implementation of the Collaborative Care model across 186 Oak Street Health (OSH) primary care centers in 25 states and the benefits of having an up-front capitated, full-risk model for primary care. In addition, he will discuss recent work at OSH in reaction to the results of the SPIRIT study--tackling more severe presentations, including Bipolar Disorder and PTSD, through the Collaborative Care Model.
