This project will bring Saint Peter’s Health Medical Group’s medical and behavioral health services together within the primary care setting to better the overall health and well-being of their patients and community. The project will focus on the Behaviorist Model of Care that encompasses the nine core elements of integrated behavioral health: intentional level of integration, leadership support, team-based care, care coordination, data analytics, evidence-based models of care, defined care continuum, stepped care, and psychiatric consultations. In addition to the employment of the core elements, the health system will also focus on the development of a business and operational process to ensure program sustainability.
