NO WRONG DOOR
Integrated primary care is a service that combines medical and behavioral health providers to more fully address the spectrum of problems that patients bring to their primary healthcare providers. It allows patients to feel that, for almost any problem, they have come to the right place . . . a ”no wrong door” approach.
MarillacHealth follows a team-based model of care in which medical and behavioral health providers partner to facilitate the detection, treatment, and follow-up of mental health or behavioral disorders.
This approach promotes overall wellness in patients by treating mental or behavioral health needs together with other health conditions in the primary care setting. It not only improves mental health outcomes but also helps prevent and reduce chronic disease.
Behavioral health providers engage in health promotion for “at risk” patients through universal screening. They utilize brief, solution-focused treatments to address mild to moderate psychiatric disorders and for maintaining the treatment of severe psychiatric disorders (bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, etc.) that have been stabilized.
Integrating mental or behavioral health, substance use, and primary care services requires the team to work in close coordination and collaboration. This results in a seamless continuum of care for the patients.
The model produces the best outcomes and has proven to be the most effective approach to caring for people with multiple healthcare needs.
