Regional Assessment for Behavioral Health Professionals
As part of the Medicaid Transformation Project, SWACH has distributed an assessment to Providers in our region. This is the second in a series of assessments SWACH is fielding in early 2018 aimed at developing an understanding of the current state of clinical partners’ capacity and functionality related to a number of areas, including:
- Health information technology (HIT)
- Workforce capacity
- Value based payment (VBP)
- Bi-directional integration (behavioral and physical health)
- Care coordination
- Opioid treatment, and
- Chronic disease management
Information provided will be used by SWACH and its advisory Councils and workgroups to inform Medicaid Transformation Project implementation, establish a baseline for state reporting requirements, and to develop technical assistance and training resources for partners.
A webinar was hosted on March 22nd to review the assessment and address any questions from partners. A recording of that webinar is available here. If you have any questions, including about receiving a link to participate in the assessment, please contact Daniel Smith Daniel.Smith@southwestach.org or 503-549-6495.
