Evaluation: Building Evaluation Capacity Among Integrated Health Care Organizations

Overview

In August 2012, the Hogg Foundation awarded funding to ten organizations to plan and implement integrated behavioral and physical health care (IHC) programs. The grant program is a part of the foundation’s continued effort to promote IHC in Texas, with the ultimate goal of making IHC the standard model of care for the state.

Mental Health America of Greater Houston (MHA) coordinated grantee activities within the initiative, and Dr. Toni Watt, Professor of Sociology at Texas State University, provided technical assistance and consultation to the grantees on the evaluation of their respective projects. The technical assistance for the IHC planning and implementation grants is a continuation of the Hogg Foundation’s efforts to grow grantee evaluation capacity.

This report highlights evaluation capacity building of six grantees—five Federally-Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) and one local mental health authority—who have completed the terms of their two-year implementation grants.
