Integrating Behavioral Health to Improve Patient Outcomes
The number of patients suffering from behavioral health conditions continues to increase and is a major concern for health care providers, particularly amid COVID-19. Many primary care practices struggle to provide mental health and substance abuse treatment and lack innovative strategies to meet the behavioral health needs of their patients. During this webinar you will learn about the benefits of and models and methods for integrating behavioral health into your practice, as well as strategies for coding and billing. You also will hear from a Federally Qualified Health Center that modified its medication assisted treatment program during the pandemic to continue meeting the needs of its patients and learn how it plans to bring clinicians and patients back onsite to the practice.
