Integration of Primary Care, Behavioral Health and Community Supports in Real Life Cases: Developing and Implementing Person-Centered Care for People with Complex Health Care Needs

This conference was held in three locations across Massachusetts in June 2014. The purpose of the conference was to foster the integration of One Care care team members, including primary care, behavioral health and community-based providers as they deliver person-centered care for people with complex health care needs. The goal of the conference was to allow participants to:

  1. Share examples of integration with other health care professionals
  2. Identify and discuss solutions to integrating care
  3. Create an action plan for integrating primary care, behavioral health and community supports
  4. Consider ways in which providing person-centered, integrated care to individuals with disabilities can be incorporated into One Care programs and practices

Below are materials presented at the conference. Materials are available as pdf or rtf files to allow for broad access. All documents open in a new window.
