Integrating primary and behavioral health care is an evidence-based practice worthy of replication. We know little, however, about the workforce responsible for delivering primary care-based behavioral health services and what procedures they use in integrated settings. This project uses analysis of claims data to describe the types of behavioral health providers that deliver integrated services in primary care settings in rural and urban areas in ambulatory primary care sites in Michigan in 2020 and 2021. These services include screening and treatment, care management, MAT, and telebehavioral health services.
The main goal of this project is to understand the types of behavioral health providers that integrate services into the primary care setting in rural and urban areas in Michigan.
Coming summer 2022.
