What is integrated behavioral health?

Integrated health combines primary care and behavioral health maintenance and treatment. It’s an important and emerging approach aimed at improving and reducing the cost of health care and treatment.

Integrated behavioral health’s rise in popularity in recent years can be attributed 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. This includes the treatment of mental health concerns and enhanced behavior change coaching that result in improved health outcomes.
