Integrated behavioral health requires a trained workforce of multidisciplinary teams, the use of screening and early intervention to improve population health, expanding medication-assisted treatment for substance use disorders, and assessing progress by applying the right clinical quality measures.

To sustain integrated behavioral health, Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA)-funded health centers must be efficient in billing, coding, and reporting; costing services; and meeting performance measures requirements. Clinical workflows may require significant modifications to support practice workflow and to ensure a positive patient experience. Increasing competencies in these areas may require intensive one-to-one technical assistance (TA), including coaching for practice transformation.

Health centers may participate in up to four PT Coaching sessions to:

  • Identify TA needs and the coaching strategy
  • Implement recommended TA
  • Assess progress and modify the TA, as needed
  • Develop strategies for service sustainability

Each coaching session will last 60 – 90 minutes, based on need. We encourage each health center to participate in PT coaching as multidisciplinary team of integrated behavioral health champions.
