Use this questionnaire to help you think about your organization's ability to successfully implement Collaborative Care.
Using a registry tool that tracks clinical outcomes for populations of patients and supports systematic changes in treatment for patients who are not improving as expected is an essential part of successful Collaborative Care programs.
The Care Management Tracking System (CMTS) is a web-based registry that facilitates a shared care plan to collaboratively treat common medical and behavioral health conditions.
An outline of what a care manager should be prepared to discuss about a patient with a psychiatric consultant during a consultation.
The workflow to support integrated behavioral health care models such as collaborative care is a data-driven process, requiring the care team to actively use a caseload management tool. It is important that these tools are used in conjunction with the practice’s electronic health record (EHR) if they are not already built into it. Patient tracking systems that support measurement-based care vary widely in their sophistication, functionality, cost, and scalability.
Collaborative depression care delivered before cardiovascular disease onset halved the excess risk of hard cardiovascular disease events among older, depressed patients. The findings raise the possibility that the IMPACT intervention could be used as a cardiovascular disease primary prevention strategy.
Measurement-based treatment to target is one of the core principles of good behavioral health integration, rooted in the research base of collaborative care.
The AIMS Center offers a Microsoft Excel®-based patient tracking spreadsheet for providers that takes minimal upfront investment and can support Collaborative Care functions such as patient and caseload progress tracking.
