The Ohio Psychiatric Physicians Association is working with the Ohio Academy of Family Physicians to survey family physicians about integrated behavioral health care in Ohio.
Integrated care is a general term that reflects many different approaches to blending primary health care or specialty medical services with behavioral health (mental health and addiction) services.
The goal of the survey is to identify the various approaches and models being used, common themes, similarities and differences, sizes, geographic distribution, etc. in order to develop a statewide repository of data. This repository, in turn, will be used to support and expand integrated care and to identify concerns, challenges, and implementation barriers to be addressed with payers, policymakers and others.
To date, 101 responses have been received. If you have not yet responded to the survey, please do so by Tuesday, May 15.
