Join AHA’s The Value Initiative and Section for Psychiatric and Substance Abuse Services for a joint virtual workshop on Integrating Behavioral Health and Primary Care. This 60-minute webinar, May 1 at 1 p.m. ET, features behavioral experts from Atrium Health: Martha Whitecotton, RN, MSN, FACHE, senior vice president, Behavioral Health, and Manuel Castro, M.D., chief of the Department of Psychiatry and medical director of the virtual Behavioral Health Integration Program.
Integrating behavioral health care into primary care is a proven means to decreasing costs and improving care, but the prevalence of mental health problems among patients with restricted access to behavioral health providers makes integration seem daunting. Atrium Health has tackled this issue and developed a strategy to optimize resources leading to a truly integrated and financially sustainable model.
