Primary Medical Care Support & Coordination
It is well known that over 50% of all primary care visits involve some level of mental health issues. Antidepressant medication is currently being prescribed at record highs, with over 70% being prescribed by general physicians. Integrating behavioral health with certain medical conditions will accelerate medical recovery, reduce medical costs, give support and consultation services to primary care physicians, and identify those patients who need behavioral health intervention.
