Integrated Care Working at the Interface of Primary Care and Behavioral Health by Lori E. Raney

Integrated Care Working at the Interface of Primary Care and Behavioral Health


Integrated Care Working at the Interface of Primary Care and Behavioral Health by Lori E. Raney

The goals of Integrated Care: Working at the Interface of Primary Care and Behavioral Health are to educate psychiatrists about the fundamental shift underway in health care and to prepare them to be successful and effective in the new health care arena. The passage and implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act presents an opportunity for newly insured patients and for funding models of integrated care, enabling psychiatrists to have a more significant population-level impact. The only book of its kind, the guide defines integrated care, reviews the evidence base, and addresses the three potential benefits of this model of care: improved outcomes, cost containment, and enhanced patient experience (also known as the triple aim ). The new models of integrated care presented in this book are population-based, which is the key to improved outcomes, and they represent a change in how medicine in general and psychiatry in particular will approach health care delivery moving forward.The book's features are both high-impact and user-friendly: ? The book is divided into two sections, Behavioral Health in Primary Care Settings and Primary Care in Behavioral Health Care Settings, with Section 1 focused on improving the detection and treatment of behavioral health conditions by integrating behavioral health services into primary care settings and Section 2 focused on improving the health status of patient populations with serious mental illness by integrating primary care into behavioral health treatment.? Each chapter presents a set of core principles of effective collaborative care, which serve as a guide for the structure and provision of care for the varying models, regardless of the setting.? Contributors provide dozens of examples that highlight the impact psychiatrists can make in achieving the triple aim of improved outcomes, cost containment, and enhanced experience.? Detailed case vignettes integrated throughout the book bring concepts to life and help clinicians to understand and improve the patient-provider relationship. The information presented in these chapters allows both practicing psychiatrists and those in training to develop a skill set essential to designing, working in, teaching, or promoting an integrated care program within a health care system. Evidence based and timely, Integrated Care: Working at the Interface of Primary Care and Behavioral Health is a must read for clinicians in the brave new world of health care reform.


This book will be of huge value to psychiatrists, primary care physicians, and clinical staff of all disciplines; administrators; and state government officials. Most of all, it will benefit those who need our care so desperately and do not have adequate access. * Marie Hobart, MD, Psychiatric Services * Integrated Care: Working at the Interface of Primary and Behavioral Health, a new book from American Psychiatric Publishing, brings together two sides of the interface -- with hands-on, how-to advice for psychiatrists serving as consultants to primary care as well as working to improve the health status of patients with serious mental illness in community mental health centers. * Mark Moran, Psychiatric News * This excellent, very practical book reads as though you're sitting in an APA symposium? Each chapter has a unique voice and something special to offer. All in all, whether you're enthusiastic about practicing integrated care or reluctant lifting your head out of the sand wondering what's coming to a health home near you, this book is worth a read. * Mark Ragins, MD, American Journal of Psychiatry * If you are a psychiatrist or behavioral health professional involved with designing, implementing, or being hired to work within an integrated care model, buy and read this book! It provides well referenced, practical information on integrated care programs. -- Anita S. Everett, M.D., DFAPA, Section Director, Community Psychiatry, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center Baltimore, MD * Journal of Psychiatric Practice Vol. 22, No. 2 *
