This presentation will discuss four key factors resulting in widespread adoption of integrated care across an entire region: payment reform, primary care transformation, policy & advocacy efforts, and a community-funded, payer-blind technical assistance initiative. Advancing Integrated Care in Central Oregon (AIC) is a unique community-driven project designed to increase behavioral health integration in primary care settings and improve access to and coordination with specialty behavioral health. Learnings from the project will be discussed including: payer efforts to implement value-based payment models, provider efforts to rapidly transform care delivery & expand the workforce, and a regional integrated care trainer focused on building relationships and providing technical assistance and practice facilitation support for primary care & specialty behavioral health providers.
- Participants will be able to describe the four key factors leading to widespread regional implementation of integrated care delivery models.
- Participants will be able to describe successful components of building closer relationships between primary care clinics and specialty behavioral health providers in the community.
- Participants will understand key strategies for transforming payment and care delivery models to support whole-person, team-based primary care.
