HITEQ Health Center Behavioral Health Integrator Badge
Health centers are increasing the integration of behavioral health in primary care, spurred by an increased focus on whole person care and additional funding. Effective use of health IT in conjunction with patient privacy and confidentiality is imperative to support behavioral health.

According to the Office of the National Coordinator, "Health information technology can help to improve behavioral health care and can further enable care coordination and integration, increase information sharing, and support prevention, treatment, and recovery activities. Access to and the exchange and use of behavioral health information as part of routine care can help to improve continuity in care services and support efforts toward achieving an interoperable health care system across the continuum."

HITEQ Highlights: Integrating Patient Self-Monitoring Blood Pressure Within Office-Based Hypertension Management

HITEQ Highlights Webinar

Coming out of the pandemic, much of the conversation about virtual care has tended to focus on synchronous telehealth audio and video visits. This HITEQ Highlights dived deeper into another potentially supportive and valuable strategy in the suite of virtually enabled care. Attendees joined us for a presentation by Clinical Pharmacist and Associate Clinical Professor, Michelle Jacobs, as she described the experience of integrating patient self-monitoring of blood pressure within an office based hypertension management approach. This session included topics such as the evidence base for a self-monitoring blood pressure program, best practices in hypertension management through a self-monitoring program, and technology barriers and challenges to remote blood pressure monitoring.

Patient privacy and confidentiality form a crucial component of the patient-doctor treatment relationship, particularly when seeking treatment for mental health or substance use disorders.
