Abstract

We are working with four Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) sites within the D.C. area to collect survey and interview data on patients’ and providers’ thoughts and experiences with the integrated behavioral health (IBH) in primary care model. The purpose of this research is to better understand the impacts that the IBH model has within the D.C. community. Using the data collected from patients and providers, the goal is to increase knowledge and awareness of the IBH model within community health centers, ultimately leading to an increase in access to behavioral health services and improved coordination of care for all patients within FQHCs.
