Systematic Pathway to Integrated Care: General Health Integration Framework Learning Collaborative Evaluation Findings
A lack of integrated health services often leads to poor client health outcomes and higher health care costs across provider organizations. By advancing general health integration (GHI), community behavioral health providers are in a unique position to address co-occurring and chronic physical conditions, mental health and substance use disorders to improve patient outcomes and potentially achieve substantial financial savings.
In 2022, the Center of Excellence for Integrated Health Solutions (CoE-IHS) hosted a learning collaborative to assess the effectiveness and sustainability of a GHI framework developed by Montefiore Health System. The framework helps clinics, especially Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs), develop a locally tailored and site-specific action plan, prioritize their actions and identify needed resources for implementation.
Join us for a webinar on Tuesday Oct. 31, 12–1 p.m. ET to delve into the comprehensive evaluation conducted throughout the learning collaborative. GHI experts will discuss insights and key findings from the recently published brief, highlighting the workflows and measurable improvements achieved by participants who embraced the GHI framework.
