Measurement-based treatment to target is one of the core principles of good behavioral health integration, rooted in the research base of collaborative care.

An article published in the New England Journal of Medicine discusses the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Sevices' payment codes for behavioral health integration.

Developed in conjunction with the AIMS Center, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) offers a 2-hour course outlining essential skills for a primary care provider within a Collaborative Care program. The course aims to help PCPs 1) understand the Collaborative Care model and develop skills to work with a psychiatric consultant and 2) strengthen behavioral health skills for a primary care setting.

This course is free and participants are eligible to earn Continuing Medical Education credits. 

A substantial body of evidence for Collaborative Care has emerged since its development at the University of Washington in the 1990s. Beginning with the seminal IMPACT Trial published in 2002, more than ninety randomized controlled trials and several meta-analyses show that Collaborative Care (CoCM) is more effective than usual care for patients with depression, anxiety, and other behavioral health conditions.

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.
