I recently got to see a presentation by Dr. JÜRGEN UNÜTZER of the University of Washington about the practical aspects of integrating Behavioral Healthcare with Primary Care. The doctor makes a very compelling case on what works and what doesn’t. Here is a link to a synopsis article and other resources. Embedding BH in PC works well if you approach it correctly with the doctor showing doubled success rates for many diagnoses with no other change in regime.
Interesting, huh? Helping our consumers to get well. What a concept.
