Evaluation of the Collaborative Care Model of Integrated Health Care in Texas
Research shows that integrated health care, the systematic coordination of physical and behavioral health services, is successful in primary care settings. However, little information is available addressing the process of implementing these models in community-based practice settings.
An evaluation funded by the Hogg Foundation for Mental Health at The University of Texas at Austin attempted to better understand the successes, challenges and outcomes of implementing integrated health care in community health clinics in Texas. Organizations that participated in the evaluation were part of a demonstration program funded by the Hogg Foundation.
