Integration & Alignment of Public Health, Behavioral Health, and Primary Care Committee

The integration of public health, behavioral health and primary care has long been considered a best practice priority, but difficult to achieve. The greater demand for improved healthcare outcomes at a reasonable cost creates a new opportunity for the integration of the three areas.

The charge to the Integration & Alignment of Public Health, Behavioral Health, and Primary Care Stakeholder Committee is to develop an integrated person centered model in which public health and behavioral health initiatives are actively supported by healthcare providers (PCMH and other service models), and PCMH and other service models are integrated into public health and behavioral health initiatives.
