Integrated behavioral health
The primary care and integrated behavioral health team is from a variety of disciplines and has been researching the implementation of evidence-based quality improvement projects for several prevalent mental health conditions.
- Depression Improvement Across Minnesota, Offering a New Direction (DIAMOND) is an ongoing project examining a model of adult depression care.
- Coordinated Anxiety Learning and Management (CALM) is a model for the provision of evidence-based psychotherapy in primary care for adults with anxiety disorders. Initial outcomes show significant results for patients with generalized anxiety disorder.
- Early Management and Evidence-Based Recognition of Adolescents Living With Depression (EMERALD) is an adaption of a care model for adult depression that is being coordinated for adolescent patients.
- Diabetes, Cardiovascular Disease and Depression is a model of care for comorbid patients. This multisite project has been implemented at six primary care sites around Minnesota.
- Additional projects include outcomes and qualitative research on care management, examining emergency department utilization and researching patients with unexplained medical symptoms.
