Promising Practices in Virtual Integrated Behavioral Health Care

Promising Practices in Virtual Integrated Behavioral Health Care

Lessons from Community Health Centers during COVID-19; February 2021

With the rapid shift to telehealth services propelled by the COVID-19 pandemic, many community health centers had to rapidly transition to a mechanism of care delivery previously unknown and unfamiliar. Within a matter of days and weeks, health centers creatively found ways to transform workflows and approaches to care delivery to continue to provide care even if the patient was physically distant. This resource highlights promising practices in virtual integrated behavioral health care identified from community health centers. 

Generated from observations in group and individual conversations with health center leaders, primary care association staff, and behavioral health practitioners over a three-month period in Fall 2020, this document provides a brief snapshot into the tremendous creativity and hard work that has characterized health center operations since the start of the pandemic. While this summary is intended to spark adaptation and improvement, it is also a testament to the flexibility and patient focus that health center staff demonstrate every day prior to and during these unprecedented times.
