PCMH Lehigh Capital PA Learning Session 8.5.21

August 5, 2021

The PCMHs are utilizing some of the techniques and approaches to connecting their patients to Behavioral Health but especially with an increased number of people reporting Behavioral health issues, during COVID, the complete understanding of what is available and the workflows of how to use those resources is something they are not fully informed about. The PCMH participants may not be aware of all of the approaches available to them and also how integrating behavioral health with physical health can improve patient compliance with preventive care and with chronic disease treatment.
