The online health care management certificate can help current master’s-level health care managers lead the integration of medical and behavioral services. This five-class, 15-credit-hour certificate program may help you expand your current medical abilities to manage teams that collaborate on health treatments and services.

Why is integrated behavioral health important?

 

Integrated health combines primary care and behavioral health maintenance and treatment. It’s an important and emerging approach to improve and reduce the cost of health care and treatment.

  • As a growing practice that focuses on people-centered care, integrated health:
  • Enhances population health.
  • Improves patient experiences.
  • Reduces health care costs.
  • The discipline of integrated health care has grown in recent years.

This is due to the expansion of the Primary Care Medical Home (PCMH) model and other funding initiatives that reimburse primary care practices for better managing their patients’ complete health care. Graduates of this mental health certificate prepare for an in-demand career field that has notable potential to improve patient care outcomes. Arizona State University also offers a similar certificate with a focus on clinical studies.

By earning this behavioral health certificate, you can learn to:

  • Conduct utilization and cost analyses of integrated behavioral health.
  • Demonstrate strategies to improve:
    • Health outcomes.
    • Patient and provider satisfaction
    • Quality of care.
  • Develop and implement programs to achieve the triple aim of:
    • Improving patient care experience
    • Enhancing population health.
    • Lowering per capita health care costs.
  • Provide effective management of integrated care systems.
