The online graduate certificate in Integrated Behavioral Health - Management is designed to provide training to master’s level health care managers (or aspiring health care managers) on the integration of medical and behavioral services. Integrated healthcare has expanded significantly in recent years in conjunction with the expansion of the Primary Care Medical Home (PCMH) model and other funding initiatives that reimburse primary care practices for better managing the whole-healthcare of their patients, including treatment of mental health concerns and enhanced behavior change coaching that result in improved health outcomes. Despite the growing need for such clinics, few individuals have received training on models of primary care integration and business/funding initiatives required for successful integration.
Graduates of the Integrated Behavioral Health - Management graduate certificate will develop skills to conduct analyses of utilization and cost of integrated behavioral health, provide effective management of integrated care systems, develop and implement programs to achieve the Triple Aim, and collaboratively demonstrate strategies to improve health outcomes, patient and provider satisfaction, and quality of care.
