Morning Workshops (8:30 AM to 12 PM)

Choose one of the following 2 workshops (PC1 or PC2)

PC1: "Resolving Ambiguity: Tools for the PCMH Team to Use in Addressing Privacy and Other Ethical Issues"
Across America, medical and behavioral health providers are delivering medical and psychological services in the context of patient-centered medical home teams. While many great ideas guide their efforts, day-to-day delivery of services reveal differences in the perspectives of team members stemming from discipline-specific training experiences. To pursue the communal vision of integrated care, we need to clarify differences concerning record sharing, confidentiality, and a variety of subtle ethical issues. While this pre-conference workshop will not leave you with all the answers, it will provide you with new tools for critical thinking and an opportunity to apply them to challenging scenarios involving HIPAA, information exchange and ethical quandaries in our mission of providing accessible, high quality, cost effective and whole person care.

Content Level: Designed for all audiences

Professional Targets: Administrators, Clinicians, Teaching Faculty, Policy Makers,

Relevant Populations: Child, Adolescent, Adult, Elderly/Older Adult.
Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
  • Name three common ethical quandaries that occur in delivery of team-based primary care services.
  • List multiple factors related to patient care that providers need to consider in making decisions and policies about patient privacy.
  • Describe and be able to apply the Four Topics approach to resolving ethical dilemmas.
Presenters
• Christine Runyan, PhD, ABPP, Director Post-doctoral Fellowship, Behavioral Science Director for Family Medicine Residency, University of Massachusetts
• Patricia J Robinson, PhD, Psychologist, Director of Training, Mountainview Consulting
• Debra A. Gould MD, MPH, Faculty, Central Washington Family Medicine Residency Program
Practice Tools or Practical Skills
  • Application of the Four Topics method for resolving ethical quandaries in their own settings and teaching this method to others at their site.
How Does This Relate to the Triple Aim?
Providing ethical collaborative healthcare characterized by improved communication and shared record keeping will decrease fragmentation. Decreased fragmentation of care improves patient outcomes and reduces costs, two of the elements from the IHI Triple Aim.

PC2: The Primary Care Behavioral Health Model (PCBH) of Service Delivery: Key Strategies for Operations, Practice, Program Evaluation and Payment
Successfully implementing a PCBH model of service delivery can be a challenge. A range of operational factors, if poorly executed can limit or prevent the successful launch and sustainment of this service delivery model. This workshop will include a focused discussion of the PCBH core service delivery components and the scientific evidence upon which the model is based. Examples of goodness of fit for healthcare systems of various size and sector (e.g., government & private) and the processes of development, rollout and challenges in these systems will be reviewed. The importance of hiring the right behavioral health consultant for the team and the policy and standard operating procedures on which privacy, data security, and ethical considerations are made is vital for program success. Effectively targeting these areas will be discussed. Outcomes are the foundation on which new payment models can work. Pay for performance, enhanced global payments/incentives for quality/access will not work if the model is not effective. Ways to engage in standard program evaluation, quality improvement and how to initiate effective payment strategies will be reviewed.
Content Level: Designed for all audiences

Professional Targets: Administrators, Clinicians, Teaching Faculty, Payors, Policy Makers
Relevant Populations: Child, Adolescent, Adult, Elderly/Older Adult.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
  • List the main components of the Primary Care Behavioral Health Model of service delivery.
  • Describe the characteristics of a behavioral health consultant that work well in this model.
  • Describe important program evaluation and quality improvement variables.
Presenters
• Christopher L. Hunter DoD Program Manager for Behavioral Health in Primary Care Defense Health Agency
• Jeff Reiter Lead, Behavioral Health Consultation Service HealthPoint Community Health Centers
• Patricia Robinson, Mountainview Consulting Group
• Neftali Serrano, Chief Behavioral Health Officer, Access Community Health Centers
• Kent Corso, Program Manager, Behavioral Health in Patient Centered Medical Home, National Capital Region Medical Directorate
• Bill Rosenfeld, Director, Integrated Behavioral Health, Mountain Park Health Center
Practice Tools or Practical Skills
1. Participants will know how to interview and select a behavioral health consultant that is likely to be a good fit for a PCBH model of service delivery.
2. Participants will be able to discuss with clinic leaders the importance of process and outcome metrics that can demonstrate clinical and population health impact and how that data can be used for ongoing program evaluation and justification for funding.
3. Participants will know the financial models that can work with this model and how to get those funding streams working in their setting.

How Does This Relate to the Triple Aim?:
In order to impact patient and provider satisfaction, population health improvement and financial savings or return on health care investment, a model of behavioral health care delivery in primary care that can produce these results that is generalizable to different clinic sizes and populations has to be initiated and sustained. A Primary Care Behavioral Health (PCBH) model of service delivery can hit these targets if it is initiated in a manner that has fidelity to service delivery standards. This workshop deals with the pieces of this model that are essential in initial roll out and ongoing sustainment.


Afternoon Workshop (1 PM to 4PM)

PC3: "The Primary Care Behavioral Health Model (PCBH) of Service Delivery: Clinical Skills, Effective Interventions and Clinical Pathways"

One of the key factors in achieving the Triple Aim of patient and provider satisfaction, improved clinical outcomes and cost management is the efficient and effective delivery of primary care behavioral health screening, assessment and intervention. Primary care behavioral health consultants must have an array of skills that allow them optimally perform in primary care. This workshop will focus on core competencies and assessment and intervention skill development for optimal behavioral health consultant performance with children, adolescents and adults. Effectively leveraging these skills as part of standardized clinical pathways for better population health impact will also be addressed.

Content Level: All audiences

Professional Targets: Clinicians

Relevant Populations: Child, Adolescent, Adult, Elderly/Older Adult.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • List the primary content areas for core competency development.
  • Describe four evidence-based primary care behavioral health interventions for adults and children.
  • Discuss at least one evidence-based clinical pathway that would work in most health systems.

 

 Presenters

• Christopher L. Hunter DoD Program Manager for Behavioral Health in Primary Care Defense Health Agency

• Jeff Reiter Lead, Behavioral Health Consultation Service HealthPoint Community Health Centers

• Patricia Robinson Mountainview Consulting Group

• Suzanne Bailey Behavioral Health Consultant Cherokee Health Systems

Practice Tools or Practical Skills

1. Participants will know how to use the 5As paradigm to efficiently and effectively deliver evidence-based care.

2. Participants will have evidence-based assessment and intervention strategies for efficient and effective adult, child and adolescent primary care behavioral health service delivery.

3. Participants understand what clinical pathway processes they can implement and how to effectively implement them to improve the population impact of service delivery.

How Does This Relate to the Triple Aim?
This workshop will help participant deliver primary care appropriate behavioral health services that have been shown to improve patient and provider satisfaction. It is also geared towards evidence-based service delivery for a range of problems that have been shown to lead to improved outcomes over standard primary care service. Finally, the implementation and effective delivery of clinical pathways (e.g., depression) have potential for improved population health and overall healthcare savings.
