Behavioral Health in Primary Care

Improving access to services can take a number of forms. Read about how Behavioral Health in Primary Care can make a real difference. The literature shows that almost half of patients referred to specialty Behavioral Health do not follow through with referrals, so providing access to services where our patients go for care is a logical and effective approach to care. If you would like to know more about UW Health's Collaborative Care Integration pilot, please feel free to reach out to any of our project core team members!
