The AIMS Center is most widely known for its work in spreading the Collaborative Care Model (CoCM) but many of the practices we work with incorporate CoCM into a “blended” or stepped model that combines other behavioral health interventions and strategies. Blended models of care seen in successful integrated care practices frequently combine CoCM and the Primary Care Behavioral Health (PCBH) Model, also known as the Behavioral Health Consultant Model.
