This brief describes four key lessons that i2i Center for Integrative Health and the North Carolina Community Health Center Association learned about consumer and family engagement through facilitating a collaborative process to develop recommendations for North Carolina Medicaid about how to design and implement the new care management program to equitably meet the needs of patients and families.
The Community Health Care Association of New York State and New York State Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare leveraged their existing relationship developed under the Delta Center grant to create a unified voice to influence the state's telehealth policy.

In this brief, we describe the process by which primary care associations and behavioral health state associations built and strengthened their partnerships during Phase 1 of the Delta Center's State Action and Learning Collaborative, and offer high-level recommendations for other PCAs and BHSAs that seek to develop partnerships to advance policy and practice.
This brief summarizes key challenges faced by the rural ambulatory safety net in delivering primary care and behavioral health services since COVID-19 and the policy changes that have been implemented in response to those challenges. It also offers state-level policy recommendations to improve rural-specific primary care and behavioral health care through sustaining and supporting the movement towards telehealth, addressing social needs, and advancing value-based payment and care.
