May 1, 2015 10:00AM-4:00PM

Integration of behavioral health into primary care is designed to improve screening and treatment in primary care settings through systematic coordination and collaboration among health care providers to address both physical health and behavioral health needs. ICER’s report for New England CEPAC assesses the evidence on the comparative clinical effectiveness and value of efforts to integrate behavioral health into primary care; identifies the components potentially associated with successful integration; and evaluates the legal, regulatory, and financial landscape for behavioral health integration (BHI) throughout New England. The report also includes an overview of lessons learned from national and New England-based experts to identify potential innovations and solutions for BHI in the region.
