The Primary Care Medical Home (PCMH) and Accountable Care Organization (ACO) models are disrupting and transforming how behavioral health interventions are delivered to treat chronic medical and behavioral conditions. The traditional specialty behavioral care provider may go the way of the dinosaurs as these conditions are now treated in primary care side by side with physicians, nurses, and ancillary healthcare providers. However, traditional models of specialty behavioral health will not “fit” primary care, requiring instead an entirely new model of practice management that incorporates population health, patient engagement and activation skills, and efficient treatment. Efficient treatment is based on rapid development of an effective patient alliance, sparing use of brief individual sessions, reliance on group treatment protocols and eHealth web and smartphone interventions as adjuncts to treatment. The practice management protocol must include measures of clinician productivity, efficiency, and clinical and cost outcomes that are critical for achieving the “Accountable” care that is the basis on the current health care revolution. Dr. O’Donnell will present practical and feasible protocols and resources to help the clinician develop, implement, and evaluate an entirely new model of behavioral health practice management that “fits” the needs of the PCMH and ACO.
