Collaborative Care for Depression in an Essential Hospital

Date: Wednesday, October 11, 2017

Time: 2:00 PM ET

Recent policy changes and evolving payment models have spurred hospitals to seek integrated care delivery models, such as collaborative care, which can help identify patients with behavioral health issues, increase their access to quality treatment, and improve their outcomes. In fact, CMS in January released payment codes specifically for collaborative care that offer increased incentives for primary care practices to pursue this model.

Webinar attendees learned how association member NYC Health + Hospitals, the country’s largest public health care system, developed collaborative care tools to drive operational workflows and quality improvement across multiple sites. As a result, the health system’s depression improvement rate increased from 17.7 percent to 58.2 percent.
