Project Term: 24 months; Ended 2019
Grant Amount: $150,000
With this grant, Providence Medical Group integrated behavioral health into their Grant Creek Family Practice (a patient-centered medical home). Over the course of the project, Grant Creek established universal processes for depression and increased screening rates from 63% to 71%. They also established protocols and started universally screening for substance use disorders, anxiety, and suicide. By developing clinical workflows and applicable billing and coding procedures, Grant Creek was able to create a financially sustainable model for the future. Providence Medical Group leadership is committed to implementing the integrated behavioral health model throughout its remaining eight primary care clinics and will do so starting in 2019.
