"...the integration of behavioral health and physical medicine plays an increasing role in how care is managed for payers, providers, and patients." - Brent Feorene, President, Colonnade Healthcare Solutions

One of today’s most promising post-acute healthcare integration points resides at the care cycle pivot where the behavioral health offering presents home health agencies with new value in a rapidly changing healthcare environment. In a new white paper, titled: "Home Health Pivot Point: the Business Case for Behavioral Health," Colonnade Healthcare Solutions (Colonnade) offers insights and solutions for healthcare executives where the integration of behavioral health and physical medicine play an increasing role in how care is managed for payers, providers, and patients.

Established on leading data, the white paper theses highlights include:

  •          how behavioral health patients are often the highest cost, from a chronic disease and

        mental health co-morbidity perspective;

  •          how payers are looking for models to integrate physical medicine and supports for             behavioral health into care;

  •          the unique value proposition for home health agencies at the behavioral health and physical medicine integration point;
  •          and how the home health agency model for community health workers provide the basic infrastructure for “boots-on-the-ground” in communities of need.

With this new data in the marketplace, Colonnade hopes to provide healthcare executives in post-acute and home health care with a clearer sense of solution-based opportunities. The white paper outlines how providers and payers are designing value-based care models with dual eligible patients in mind.
