Please see recording of this event in our Webinar Archives
Overview: Practices implementing integrated behavioral health and primary care require transformation on multiple levels in order to be successful. Implementation of elements of the patient-centered medical home model is necessary, along with dealing with culture change and culture clashes. The result is improved and more accessible health care for our patients – but the path to this transformation can be challenging. This webinar will present lessons learned from multiple integration projects regarding this transformation process.
