Abstract :

Increased prevalence of noncommunicable chronic disease (NCD) has led to a global crisis and calls for improved prevention and disease management initiatives. In the United States the Affordable Care Act (ACA) has led to primary care based health care transformation designed to improve NCD prevention and management. New models of primary care delivery, such as the Patient Centered Medical Home and Accountable Care Organization are examples. A key component of transformation is integrated behavioral health; primary care, team-based, coordinated treatment of medical, lifestyle (e.g., nutrition, physical activity) and behavioral conditions (e.g., depression, alcohol abuse) that underlie and are associated with poor NCD outcomes. This presentation will review two Internet-based approaches to assessment of integrated behavioral health services in primary care. First, results of the Provider Integration Profile (PIP), an Internet-based questionnaire designed to measure levels of integrated behavioral health in primary care, will be reviewed. Second, the design of a new Internet-based Health Risk Assessment (HRA), ├ó┬?┬?My Health and Happiness Manager├ó┬?┬Ł (MHHM) will be reviewed. The MHHM is based on existing measures of health risk that are applicable in both Western and Asian populations. The presentation will include a survey of research on the relationship between level of primary care integration, health risk, and treatment clinical and cost outcomes.
