This review is an initial exploration of team development within effective integrated primary and behavioral healthcare teams. Six integrated teams in safety net primary care settings were interviewed on the development of the clinical team.
In this Phase 1 evaluation report, we describe the progress that state associations have made towards advancing VBP/C in the safety net, some of the effects of COVID-19 on Delta Center state association plans and activities, state association staff perspectives on the Delta Center, and recommendations for Phase 2 of the Delta Center.
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 describes describes four key outcomes of the first phase of the Delta Center, which funded 12 state teams for its first cohort of the State Learning & Action Collaborative. Relationships built through the Delta Center helped support the safety net’s initial response to COVID-19 and will continue to contribute to greater alignment between primary care and behavioral health in future policy and practice changes.
