CCNC’s behavioral health experts explore how North Carolina pediatricians can benefit from implementing the Collaborative Care Model (CoCM), an evidence-based model of integrated care that combines both physical and mental health care in a primary care setting. 

The white paper, entitled “The Collaborative Care Model and Pediatric Practices in North Carolina: Three Case Studies and Discussion,” shares insights from real-world approaches to integrated care in three North Carolina pediatric primary care practices.

“The CoCM is designed to support pediatricians by bringing psychiatric expertise into the primary care setting,” writes Nicole Laramee, behavioral health integration program manager at CCNC. “Adherence to an evidence-based model of integrated care—such as the CoCM—may better satisfy the Quadruple Aim of health systems performance: decreased cost, improved quality of care, and enhanced patient and provider experience.”
