Project Term: 12 months; Ended 2017
Grant Amount: $35,000
This project’s goal was to prepare an integrated behavioral health business and operations plan to serve as a blueprint for building an economically sustainable, patient-centered, team-based collaboration between Intermountain and PureView. The project resulted in an MOU for placement of a part-time Intermountain psychotherapist at PureView, and a formal agreement for carrying forward a focused and informed approach for implementing integrated care at the East Helena Schools Clinic. This planning grant provided an opportunity for both partners to examine their existing and potential relationships with behavioral and primary care providers, and to explore new and promising opportunities for integrated health.
