Chris Barton, LCSW, Michael D’Amico, LCSW, and Vera Sansone, LCSWSpeaker Bio
The presenters will discuss their experience developing and implementing an integrated system of care that partners community-based, nonprofit behavioral health treatment providers with primary care practices (PCPs) and social service agencies to identify community members in need of treatment for serious mental illness or substance use, and then collaborate in the delivery of care to support the consumers. They will elaborate on the Integrated System of Care model that relies on the behavioral health providers, not PCPs, to quarterback care and uses a flexible case rate and performance incentives to compensate provider partners. They will also discuss the use of standardized instruments to determine care needs and evaluate outcomes. Finally, the presenters will discuss the unique payer-provider partnership model that has supported this program’s development and expansion.
At the end of this session, attendees will be able to:
- Define integrated care and describe the clinical and other outcomes from the Integrated System of Care model.
- Define measurement-based care and convey an understanding of its importance in evaluating programs and leveraging these in value-based arrangements.
- Articulate the merits of payer-provider partnerships to develop and evaluate innovative treatment programs.
