A multi-disciplinary approach to delivering behavioral healthcare is gaining traction in our state, say mental health experts. In the Collaborative Care Model (CoCM), primary care providers, care managers, and psychiatric consultants work together to provide care and monitor patients' progress.
The approach is gathering momentum through support and integration from the NC Medicaid program, Community Care of North Carolina, the NC Psychiatric Association, NCAHEC, primary care practices, behavioral health providers and health insurer Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina. Nationwide, programs using this model have improve clinical outcomes and reduced costs for a variety of mental health conditions across various care settings.
