Patients Have A Mental Health Disorder
Among Patients With Chronic Condition
Mental Diagnoses Have 1+ Chronic Condition
Access. That’s the center of the mental health diagnosis problem. Primary care physicians are uniquely positioned to be part of the solution, but high growth solutions require an innovative delivery approach.
Behavioral Health Integration (BHI) in primary care is a growing initiative. It is the best large-scale solution for addressing mental health access. BHI is the one solution that is able to increase access and open up the largest group of providers to patients. It allows primary care physicians to administer assessments, conduct comprehensive care and treatment, and refer patients to their best resource – mental health professionals.
Primary care groups can’t, and shouldn’t, bear the burden of adopting BHI alone. Fortunately, they don’t have to. WeCounsel’s secure platform and expansive Telebehavioral Health Network can implement BHI in any primary care group. WeCounsel understands that quality partnerships are the key to moving healthcare innovation forward.
It is widely documented that one of the largest inhibitors to chronic care patient compliance is tied to addressing mental health comorbidity. Improve outcomes by integrating WeCounsel’s telebheavioral health network.
Primary care physicians are the central point of care for the most patient populations. BHI represents the greatest opportunity for solving for behavioral access.
From CMS to private payers, the incentive structure now exists to allow primary care physicians to get reimbursed for behavioral health services, including assessments, referrals, and general behavioral care.
