Community Behavioral Health: Leading the Way in Cross Systems Integration
Keywords:Integrated Care, Social Determinants of Health, Systems Integration, Medicaid
Community Behavioral Health (CBH) is a non-profit 501c (3) corporation contracted by the City of Philadelphia to manage the delivery of behavioral health services for Medicaid recipients of Philadelphia County. CBH believes that integration of care is, at its essence, a person-centered approach to care that considers not only the individual’s precipitating need but also the social determinants of health that impact on the individual or family. To achieve this, coordination, across systems and service providers, is critical. This will review the various systems level partnerships that we have achieved in Philadelphia, why integrated care is a preferrable model and what some of the key ingredients to a strong partnership include.
