The CFHA Blog turns six years old this month! As a token of respect and work-shyness, we are highlighting all the best posts from the last year.
Last summer, before the CFHA Annual Conference, Colleen Fogarty and Jeff Ring reflected on reflecting while Matt Martin opined the state of PCMH. Paul Simmons and Andrew Pomerantz goaded readers into attending their informative and highly entertaining CFHA presentation in Washington, DC while Don Bloch, the visionary behind CFHA, was honored in a reprint of an interview.
Lisa Zak-Hunter showcased three terrific collaborative triumphs here, here, and here. Cheryl Holt channeled David Letterman by listing the top ten useful measurements and tools for collaborative care and CFHA flexed some of its poetic muscle. The Super Utilizer movement got a bump from Barry Jacobs while Suzanne Bailey, Beth Schreiter, and Meghan Fondow gave us the skinny on effective supervision in primary care.
Wayne Katon, a pioneer in collaborative care, was fondly remembered in one post and Sandy Blount took us all to school for a history lesson on the integration of behavioral health into primary care. Cathy Hudgins and Barry Jacobs discussed the ethics of an intriguing and controversial case regarding caregiving, dementia, and sex while Juliette Cutts and Jackie Williams-Reade battled over the existential value of being an extrovert or an introvert in collaborative care. Finally, CFHA went across the nation to Colorado, Maine, North Carolina, and Oregon to discover the United States of Integrated Care.
