How to get primary care and behavioral health to march together

Share this:


This article  by Benjamin Miller looks at creating a “culture of whole health” in which primary care and behavioral heath advance together.

A report looks at:

  • Organizing integration efforts.
  • Workforce training and other education.
  • Financing, with  the current fee-for-service payment system presenting huge barriers to team-based integrated care.
  • Technology.
  • Care delivery, with integrated-care delivery requiring curating and sharing evidence on integrating mental health and primary care and including prevention and health promotion. 
  • Population and Community Health: The effort must consider such social determinants of health as housing, education, employment and environmental conditions.
