Ohio TTAC Integrated Care and Health Home Learning Community

Ohio Health Home Integration Center

The National Council for Behavioral Health and OhioMHAS are pleased to announce the 2014-15 Ohio TTAC Integrated Care and Health Home Learning Community. Providers in Ohio have the opportunity to participate in ongoing learning exchange and individualized coaching to optimize implementation of Health Homes or improve readiness for application and implementation of health home services.

We are working with one cohort of up to 40 organizations this year, emphasizing goal setting and learning in the following key areas: data management and quality improvement, infrastructure and business change, and population health management.  As in the past, the focus of engagement activities (e.g. with hospitals and MCOs), coaching, and training topics will be influenced by participating organizations’ goals and needs.
