5 Best Practices and Clinical Transformation Group Mission, Vision, and Values Mission:To align with IHI’s Triple Aim of improving health outcomes and patient experiences of care while controlling the costs of care. RCCO 3 & 5 will focus on 3 cost areas by:  Reducing unnecessary ED utilization,  Reducing unnecessary hospital readmission,  Reducing unnecessary high cost imaging. Vision: For everyone to have the right care at the right time from the right provider. Values: Clinical transformation is ‘patient-centric’; clinical transformation is ‘provider-led’; clinical transformation nets ‘value.’

6  Endorse and support the “Tenets of Engagement.”  Collect, analyze, interpret and act on individual and collective data.  Contribute to the Best Practices and Clinical Transformation Group through demonstrations, presentations and adoption of best practices.  Communicate with RCCO partners, learn from PCMP efforts, and educate and inspire colleagues through regular use of the VC3, the web-based RCCO Virtual Community for Collaborative Care.”  Mobilize the ‘will for change’ through community engagement Best Practices and Clinical Transformation Group Goals & Strategies

7  We are a Sharing and Learning community…with shared vision, shared values and shared aims.  We are leaders and we lead the improvement efforts.  We are committed to change even if it is not comfortable.  We move from ‘mine’ to ‘ours’ as our incentives become aligned.  Our culture is based on relationships that are trusting, respectful, open-minded, mutually supportive and non-competing.  We believe that information that transforms care should not be proprietary.  We engage in healthy dialogue such that the status quo is challenged and new ideas are respectfully and critically analyzed. Best Practices and Clinical Transformation Group Tenets of Engagement

8  Our focus is on the whole patient.  The patients’ perspective is the most important perspective to consider.  Priority is given to relationships between providers and patients and we help these thrive.  We endeavor to expand and build collaborative relationships between all stakeholders including but not limited to primary care, specialty care, mental health, hospitals, long term care, payers.  We embrace the concept of ‘team’, and include patients and community members on the team.  We will build a ‘think tank’ or ‘clearing house’ for best practices in transforming care.

16 Lydia M. Prado, PhD Yvette Buxton, MD Dawn Wilson- Davenport, PhD Rachel Lund, LCSW The Mental Health Center of Denver A ROADMAP : PEDIATRIC PRIMARY CARE AND BEHAVIORAL HEALTH SERVICES INTEGRATION

17  Consultation  Co-Location  Case Management Driven Models  Integrated Service Models Primary care has behavioral health specialists, embedded in their practice, who can assess and work with children and families, providing promotion, prevention, early intervention and treatment services in partnership with the primary care provider/s. SERVICE INTEGRATION APPROACHES

18  “One of the best indicators of risk for emergence of mental illness in the future is the presence of parental or caretaker concern about a particular child’s behavior. Primary care offices can screen for risk by routinely inquiring about parental concern. The prevention of mental illness and physical disorders and the promotion of mental health and physical health are inseparable.” National Research Council and Institute of Medicine (2009) WHY INTEGRATE?

19 “Integrated primary care combines medical and behavioral health services to more fully address the spectrum of problems that patients bring to their primary medical care providers. It allows patients to feel that, for almost any problem, they have come to the right place.” Alexander Blount, Ed.D., Director, Center for Integrated Primary Care WHY INTEGRATE?

20  Primary Care: Client population/demographics Staffing patterns Specific concerns/mental health needs Payer sources EMR provider What are the primary goals of primary care/behavioral health integration? Who are the champions for service integration? How will this model be funded?  Behavioral Health: Services available Staff allocations How can behavioral health be most helpful? ASSESSING FEASIBILITY: INITIAL DISCUSSIONS

21  Practice Management (screening, well visits, scheduled consultations, unscheduled consultations, therapy)  Credentialing  Scheduling/practice pace  Consent to treatment/mandatory disclosure  Modifications to the electronic medical record  Documentation  To bill or not to bill  Outcomes measurement  Sustainability ADDRESSING SYSTEMS AND PRACTICE CHANGES

22  Role clarification  Documentation/Coding/Confidentiality  Billing (Who, what, when, how)  Contracting  Hiring  Onboarding  Reporting and supervisory relationships  Ongoing communication, check-in meetings  Outcomes: care outcomes, cost outcomes, data capture; patient, provider, family perspectives? ADDRESSING THE DETAILS

23  How is it going for patients, providers, behavioral health consultant, front desk staff?  What’s working?  What can be improved?  Is the infrastructure supporting data, outcome and billing requirements?  Are we able to do what we set out to do? FEEDBACK LOOPS

24  Clinical Practice  Practice Management Skills  Consultation Skills  Documentation Skills  Team Performance Skills  Administrative Skills THE BEHAVIORAL HEALTH CONSULTANT: CORE COMPETENCIES
