8 Definition The care that results from a practice team of primary care and behavioral health clinicians, working together with patients and families, using a systematic and cost-effective approach to provide patient-centered care for a defined population. This care may address mental health, substance abuse conditions, health behaviors (including their contribution to chronic medical illnesses), life stressors and crises, stress-related physical symptoms, ineffective patterns of health care utilization. Value of Integration: Physical/Behavioral Integration is good health policy and good for health. Peek, C. J., National Integration Academy Council. (2013).

15 Our Mission: To improve health and health care worldwide 15

16 IHI’s Work: Five Key Areas 16

17 Triple Aim for Populations 17 Our Goal: Drive the Triple Aim, simultaneously improving the health of the population, enhancing the experience and outcomes of the patient, and reducing per capita cost of care for the benefit of communities.

19 Today’s Agenda Making the case: Integration and the Triple Aim Overview of IHI IHI’s research on behavioral health integration Five-step sequence to integrate BH Future directions for IHI’s work Behavioral Health Integration Capacity Assessment (BHICA)

20 What drives IHI’s interest in integration? Poor outcomes and high costs for patients with medical + behavioral comorbidities. Getting to the Triple Aim will require addressing behavioral health! Changing incentives will facilitate this. 20

21 Research Project Aims Understand the core principles underlying successful approaches to integration of behavioral health services into primary care. Develop IHI’s approach to integration. Identify how IHI can support organizations to integrate behavioral health and primary care. 21

22 Research Methods Reviewed peer-reviewed and grey literature and materials from existing models. 22 NameOrganization Gary BelkinNYC HHC / NYU Benjamin MillerUniversity of Colorado – Denver Mary RainwaterIntegration Consultant, formerly with IBHP Laurie AlexanderIntegration Consultant, formerly with AIMS Center Alexander BlountUMass Medical Center, Center for Integrated Care Parinda KhatriCherokee Health Systems Jurgen UnutzerIMPACT / AIMS Center, University of Washington Brenda Reiss-BrennanIntermountain Health Care Robin HendersonSt. Charles Health System Russell PhillipsHarvard Medical School, Center for Primary Care Ileana WelteBig White Wall Brady ColeU.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs

23 Key Research Findings Perception is that there are many different ways to implement integration; we found that the commonalities are much greater than the differences. – Collaborative care principles; strong evidence base. Five-step sequence to integrate BH Biggest challenges are business case and operationalizing components into workflows. Improvement approach is currently lacking. Lack of integration outside of clinic visit. 23

24 Innovation: Full Spectrum Integration Layer of ServiceFrequency of Interaction Where service is provided Who provides service 1 – Acute CareContinuous (during hospitalization) HospitalPhysicianCost 2 –Clinic CareQuarterlyClinicPCP; behavioral health provider. Could include group visits 3 – Community CareWeekly; more than once a week initially Home, workplace, community organization Community health workers; mobile clinics. Could include group visits 4 – Family Engagement in Care DailyHomeFamily members 5 – Self-careDailyHomePatients 6 - Policy and Financial Considerations 24

25 Which states and why? Variability in financial environment between states to support behavioral health integration. Some states may be more interested than others due to: Medicaid waivers, Medicaid BH carve out, Medicaid expansion / expected growth in Medicaid population, # of ACOs & pushes for global payments. We compiled a list of states with favorable markets for integration. Favorable States: AZ, AR, CA,CO, IL, KY, MD, MI, NV, NJ, NM, OH, OR, and VT. 25

26 Today’s Agenda Making the case: Integration and the Triple Aim Overview of IHI IHI’s research on behavioral health integration Five-step sequence to integrate BH Future directions for IHI’s work Behavioral Health Integration Capacity Assessment (BHICA)

27 Five Step Sequence 1. Assess readiness for integration. 2. Develop reliable operations and processes to support integrated care. 3. Develop the business case for integration. 4. Re-design care delivery using collaborative care principles for integration. 5. Operationalize changes into clinical workflows. 27

28 1. Assess readiness for integration Assess readiness based on: – Patient needs – Clinic characteristics – Policy & financial environment – Existing data & measurement system Assess Readiness

29 2. Develop Reliable Operations and Processes to Support Integrated Care Leadership and culture Access and workflows – Technology considerations – Workforce: recruitment, hiring, onboarding, and oversight of staff – Workflows – Seamless information sharing & communication Tracking patients and using data – Continuous quality improvement and outcomes monitoring Space and supplies to support BH care Assess Readiness 2. Processes to Support Integration

30 3. The Business Case for Integration Fee-for-service workarounds Negotiate case rates with payers Consider global funding strategies and blended payment systems Identify federal and state incentives to support integrated care Train staff to optimize use of existing revenue sources to provide cost efficient, medically necessary care Assess Readiness 2. Processes to Support Integration 3. Make the Business Case

31 4. Re-design Care Delivery Using Collaborative Care Principles Develop interdisciplinary care team Promote self-care support and family engagement Treatment to target Stepped care Systematic caseload review, consultation & referral Adoption of evidence-based guidelines BH providers support healthy behavior change in addition to screening, diagnosis, and treatment for BH conditions Assess Readiness 2. Processes to Support Integration 3. Make the Business Case 4. Redesign Care Delivery

32 5. Operationalize Changes in Clinical Workflows Fully implement operational infrastructure Sample change ideas to operationalize collaborative care principles: – Interdisciplinary care team proactively manages a panel and chronic health conditions and participates in care planning – Coordinate care inside and outside of org. including tracking referrals Technological solutions when BH providers are not available in person Assess Readiness 2. Processes to Support Integration 3. Make the Business Case 4. Redesign Care Delivery 5. Operationalize Changes in Workflows

33 Today’s Agenda Making the case: Integration and the Triple Aim Overview of IHI IHI’s research on behavioral health integration Five-step sequence to integrate BH Future directions for IHI’s work Behavioral Health Integration Capacity Assessment (BHICA)

34 Where IHI can add value Focus on how to make specific changes and on addressing operational and organizational issues that need to be in place to facilitate implementation of integrated care. Bring improvement science to integration. Sense-making across different models. Focus on leaders and systems. Measurement of system-level integration outcomes.

35 New Collaborative Program Optimize Primary Care Teams to Meet Patients’ Medical AND Behavioral Needs – Partnering with the MacColl Center for Health Care Innovation – Launches in February, areTeamstoMeetPatientsMedicalANDBehavioralNeeds/Pa ges/default.aspx

36 Areas for future innovation work Integration in high-risk specialty clinics. Scaling to communities, regions, states and solving related structural challenges. Costs (and ROI) of integration, alternative payment methods, and financial models. Behavioral health providers performing other functions on the care team, such as supporting behavior change for patients with chronic disease. Building out other layers of full spectrum integration. 36

38 Behavioral Health Integration Capacity Assessment Tool (BHICA) Resource for organizations to assess their readiness to integrate behavioral health and primary care. Consider potential approaches to integration; Understand the current infrastructure to support greater integration; Assess the organization’s strengths and challenges in undertaking different approaches to integration; Set and prioritize goals for integration efforts. https://www.resourcesforintegratedcare.com/tool/bhica 38

39 Five Sections of BHICA 1. Understanding Your Population 2. Assessing Your Infrastructure 3. Identifying the Population and Matching Care 4. Assessing the Optimal Integration Approach for Your Organization 5. Financing Integration 39
