The Collaborative Care Model and How it can Work For You, featuring CommonSpirit & Concert Health

January 13, 2022

This discussion focused on the case study brief, Increasing Access and Reducing Disparities Through the Collaborative Care Model featuring CommonSpirit Health & Concert Health.

In any given year, approximately 2 in 10 individuals consult their primary care provider for a mental health condition, and 5 in 10 experience substantial psychological distress or impairment. In addition to their suffering, these individuals incur considerably higher medical costs.

As the largest provider of care to publicly-insured (Medicare/Medicaid) individuals in the US, CommonSpirit partnered with Concert Health to implement the Collaborative Care Model and improve access to behavioral health services in their medical clinics. Join the discussion to hear more about how this partnership delivers evidence-based care and results in improved outcomes for patients.
