Behavioral Health Integration: Treating the Whole Person cover

Behavioral Health Integration:
Treating the Whole Person

Behavioral health disorders have significant impact on individual and community health, utilization of services and costs. Hospitals and health systems are working hard to create one system of care with multiple entry points for patients with multiple medical issues and to integrate behavioral health services into every patient‘s experience when and where patients need them to effectively treat the whole patient — both their physical and behavioral health care needs. By taking an aggressive and proactive approach to behavioral health integration in their communities, hospitals and health systems can see more patients using their outpatient care services and fewer patients using their EDs. This new report from the AHA Center for Health Innovation shares practices from hospitals and health systems that are working to integrate behavioral health into all care settings and collaborate with their communities for better health outcomes.
