PCBH & CoCM: PCBH & CoCM: How providers working within these models can provide optimal care
The PCBH Model has become the standard of practice for many behavioral health providers working in integrated care. While the PCBH Model is thought to provide a generalist approach to treating mental and chronic health conditions, the Collaborative Care Model (CoCM) arose from a need to address these problems in a more systematic way. This has led to some confusion by providers as to which model best addresses the treatment of mental and chronic health conditions. Moreover, these models are highly complementary, and each play a vital role in patient-centered care. This community conversation focused on the PCBH Model, CoCM, and how providers working within these models can provide optimal care.
