Transforming Care Delivery: Implementing Integrated Behavioral Health Care in The Real World

Loading Events

In October 2020, nine key thought leaders representing disparate sectors of the health care system—from advocacy, primary care, criminal justice, and academia— gathered online over two days in a “Bridging the Care Continuum” National Forum, to discuss challenges and opportunities in providing integrated mental services in a sometimes fragmented and discontinuous treatment system.  In this webinar, three of the thought leaders from the forum will meet again to recap key topics, with particular emphasis the application of continuous and integrated interventions in real world clinical settings.  Brandon Kitay, MD, PhD, Integrated Behavioral Health Integration at Emory Healthcare, will lead the discussion along with Henry Chung, Senior Medical Director for Behavioral Health Integration Strategy of Montefiore Care Management Organization, and John Kern, Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Washington Advancing Integrated Mental Health Solutions (AIMS) Center.  Please join us as they discuss their journeys in Transforming Care Delivery in clinical practice.
