From 2016 to 2019, CTC-RI led an Adult Integrated Behavioral Health (IBH) PCMH project with ten adult primary care practices. Practices implemented universal screening for depression, anxiety, and substance use disorders and through on-site behavioral health clinicians, improved access to brief behavioral health intervention. CTC’s adult IBH model has shown strong outcomes in promoting better care at reduced costs. Through this pediatric IBH initiative, CTC-RI and PCMH Kids will build on its success in implementing integrated behavioral health in adult primary care practices as well as leverage the behavioral health work done in pediatrics through our PCMH-Kids program over the past 3 years.
