The Impact of Behavioral Health Integration

Over the past nine years, Dimock has implemented a management approach to Behavioral Health Integration (BHI) which led to significant improvements:

  • Access to care: Dimock Pediatrics currently¬†has no wait list for primary care patients to access long-term therapy." rather than the numbers.
  • Financial performance: Dimock Behavioral Health Clinicians are able to be financially sustainable.
  • Provider satisfaction: Lower burnout rates for both our medical and BH providers, as measured by the Maslach Burnout Scale (0% burnout rates and 79% engaged), better than national averages.

Our course was created from the personal knowledge and experience The Dimock Community Health Center has had with integrating its behavioral health care with medical health care. This course will teach you the five management pillars needed to have a successfully integrated behavioral health care team.
