Medical appointment diagnoses and behavioral health referrals were reviewed to better understand the primary health conditions of patients seen in this setting and the primary reasons for behavioral health referrals. Information from a survey completed by medical providers about their use and knowledge of services is also presented. This poster will highlight insights obtained from this review of services, including trends in utilization, opportunities for service expansion, and recommendations for other integrated behavioral health settings.
