Integrated Health Solutions combine primary care and behavioral health services to deliver optimal care to patients. Integrating behavioral health into primary care has been a strong recommendation from the American Medical Association (McIntyre, Jack 2014), the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA), and the Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA).
Allied Behavioral Health Solutions is knowledgeable and well-equipped to assist primary care practices with the development and implementation of integrated health programming in pediatrics, primary care, and specialty medical practices. The integration of behavioral health services into medical settings promotes better outcomes in all aspects of patient care as well as assists practices in meeting Bright Futures and HEDIS metrics. Additionally, practices that utilize integrated behavioral health services report higher patient satisfaction and higher provider confidence in managing complex patients.
Integrated Behavioral Health allows for individuals to access behavioral health rapidly, in a collaborative context, with the support of a medical provider with whom they have an established relationship. Allied Behavioral Health Services will collaborate with your practice to identify a plan to engage patients in their overall wellness in a manner that best suits your patients, your staff, and the needs/resources in your community.
