Project Term: 12 months; 2017-2018
Grant Amount: $50,000
With support and training by the National Council for Behavioral Health, this project will build on the hospital’s existing patient-centered medical home and accountable care organization to explore ways to bridge the gap between primary care providers, inpatient services, emergency department, schools, and community agencies. Ultimately, this plan will remove barriers to treatment, increase knowledge and competencies within the community, and increase access to behavioral and social supports. This project specifically emphasizes the need to integrate community-based providers and partners.
