“Integrated Health Care” means care provided to individuals and their families in a patient centered primary care home or behavioral health home by licensed primary care clinicians, behavioral health clinicians and other care team members working together to address one or more of the following: mental illness, substance use disorders, health behaviors that contribute to chronic illness, life stressors and crises, developmental risk/conditions, stress-related physical symptoms, preventative care, and ineffective patterns of health care utilization.
"Behavioral Health Clinician" means: a licensed psychiatrist, a licensed psychologist, a certified nurse practitioner with a specialty in psychiatric mental health, a licensed clinical social worker, a licensed professional counselor or licensed marriage and family therapist, a certified clinical social work associate, an intern or resident who is working under a board-approved supervisory contract
in a clinical mental health field; or any other clinician whose authorized scope of practice includes mental health diagnosis and treatment.
Behavioral health care is an integral component of the Patient Centered Primary Care Home (PCPCH) that focuses on the psychological and social determinants that affect overall health. Integrated Behavioral Health Alliance of Oregon (IBHAO), a workgroup of CCO Oregon, will help define the scope and standards of excellent, evidence-based behavioral health provision in the state of Oregon that is essential to our achievement of the Triple Aim.
