Patient registries, collaborative care models, and population-based screeners are just some of the tools used to identify patient need in an integrated care model. Collaborating in the assessment and treatment of high frequency presenting problems is one way the behavioral health provider can resource both provider and patient. Listening to providers’ perception of most frequently occurring problems allows the BHP to develop resources specifically relevant to the respective clinics and providers. An original survey was developed to better understand the types and frequencies of patient issues present across the Providence Medical Group (PMG) clinics setting as well as to be a consultative tool to help develop resources to meet provider and patient needs. This 36-item tool was used in twelve different clinics throughout PMG to identify system-wide trends in patient problems and explore differences over time to develop patient resources, staff trainings, and strategies for patient care
