CoE Office Hour: Exploring Care Coordination and Population Health Management Strategies to Improve Health Outcomes

Over the last two weeks, the Center of Excellence (CoE) for Integrated Health Solutions) hosted a two-part webinar series that explored improving health outcomes for both individuals and populations, first by discussing care coordination practices, then by discussing population health management strategies. In case you missed them, check out the recordings here and here, then join us to continue the conversation at our next CoE Office Hour session on Thursday, February 4, from 2-3 p.m. ET.

In this session, our panelists will address unanswered questions from the two-part series and discuss ways organizations are leveraging care coordination and population health management strategies to improve health outcomes for the communities they serve. Whether it’s through scaling services by adding care coordinators or leveraging common electronic medical record (EMR)-based mental health and substance use screening tools, this session will provide a space for sharing ideas and peer-to-peer learning for those looking to advance population health management strategies. So, please join us so we can hear from you!

Solving for Sleep: Behavioral Health Lens on Sleep: Assessment and Intervention

This session will address sleep within behavioral health treatment: screening for sleep needs; SUD and sleep; behavioral interventions for sleep; and interdisciplinary collaboration.

This session is part of a year-long virtual series called “Solving for Sleep” which is focused on addressing sleep and related social and health needs through enhancing integrated primary and behavioral health care. This series is offered by the Primary Care Development Corporation (PCDC) and the SAMHSA Center of Excellence for Integrated Health Solutions.

CCBHCs: A New Model for Behavioral Health Gaining Momentum in States

There is growing concern about the COVID-19 pandemic’s long-term impact on mental health and substance use and the threat of an epidemic of deaths of despair from alcohol and drug use and suicide. The Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) model is well-placed to respond to this anticipated surge.

Policymakers are looking to CCBHCs to provide increased access to mental health and addiction treatment; address the longstanding gap in unmet need for care; improve partnerships with law enforcement, hospitals, and primary care; and expand states’ capacities to address the opioid crisis and growing suicide rates.

Find out how the 220 CCBHCS now operating in 33 states are changing the future of health care and why a growing number of states are moving toward permanently implementing the model independently via a state plan amendment or Medicaid waiver.

Population Health Management Strategies

Join us for a two-part webinar series that will explore improving health outcomes for both individuals and populations, first by exploring care coordination practices, and then by exploring population health management strategies.

The second webinar in this series will focus on Population Health Management, which considers all clients in a population, from low-risk, healthy individuals to high-risk individuals with chronic conditions. This approach requires the capacity to utilize data to pursue a wide range of activities to systematically track and manage health conditions, treatment access and use, and effectiveness of treatment and services to understand population health priorities. This session will explore how to leverage common EMR-based mental health and substance use screening tools, level of care determination tools, and risk stratification tools to better inform behavioral health and primary care integration, with a focus on identifying and addressing healthcare disparities.

Adolescent Substance Use 101: Current Trends & The Impact of COVID-19

This webinar will provide an overview of current trends in psychoactive substance use among adolescents. The information will describe current data about what substances are being used and how trends differ across the county. The mechanism of action and associated impact of each major drug category will be detailed. Additionally, time will be dedicated to discussing the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic and its impact on rates of use and access to treatment.

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to describe the psychoactive substances most commonly used by adolescents—including the main mechanisms of action and main reasons for adolescents’ use—and discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on current trends in adolescent substance use.
