Training Overview Description

Presenters

Laurie Alexander, PhD, Alexander Behavioral Healthcare Consulting; Benjamin Druss, MD, MPH, Rollins School of Public Health

The 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act established a health home option under Medicaid that serves enrollees with chronic conditions. Federal guidance requires a health home to have several provider standards, including quality-driven and cost effective services, comprehensive care plans for each patient, and the involvement of continuing care strategies, to name a few. Hence, becoming a health home requires multiple changes in practice, in workflow, in billing operations, and other practical areas. Behavioral health providers can anticipate that these changes will be difficult and that they will face multiple barriers when trying to implement the necessary changes to become a behavioral health home.

During this webinar, the authors of CIHS upcoming paper Behavioral Health Homes For People with Mental Health & Substance Use Conditions: The Core Clinical Features, Drs. Laurie Alexander and Benjamin Druss, will walk through the core clinical features of a behavioral health home and what to consider when becoming a behavioral health home. They will also highlight several organizations that have successfully implemented the clinical aspects.

If your organization is interested in becoming a health home, this webinar will help you:

  • Learn the core clinical features of a behavioral health home
  • Identify real-world examples of how providers are implementing the core clinical features of a health home
  • Understand the broader structure of state initiatives around health homes and how maintaining these core features are essential
