Integrating Your Practice: Key Building Blocks
Despite twenty years of evidence demonstrating the inseparability of mental health and primary care, we still have systems that perpetuate fragmentation. In response to this inefficient and ineffective care, innovation has emerged to provide comprehensive, whole person healthcare. Cherokee Health Systems is an example.
Dr. Parinda Khatri, Director of Integrated Care at Cherokee Health Systems, a comprehensive community health organization in Tennessee, will identify the key building blocks needed to successfully integrate primary care and behavioral health. Her presentation will include an overview of Cherokee’s clinical model, implementation strategies, and lessons learned regarding staffing, operational, and financial components of successful integrated program.
This webinar is presented by The Office of Integrated Healthcare Research and Policy in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. The webinar series is made possible with funding from the California Mental Health Services Authority Integrated Behavioral Health Project in partnership with the Collaborative Family Healthcare Association and the AHRQ Academy for Integrating Behavioral Health and Primary Care.
