Integrated Physical & Behavioral Health

Integrated Physical & Behavioral Health

Because behavioral and physical health are both critical to overall health, federal and state agencies as well as local healthcare providers are collaborating to improve the delivery and coordination of behavioral health services. GRC is leading several research and quality improvement efforts for behavioral health populations. Key areas of focus include access and quality of pediatric psychiatry services for children, use of telemedicine to provide psychiatric services in pediatric primary care settings, integration of primary care services in behavioral health settings, and the prevention and treatment of the inappropriate use of prescription opiates.
