HMA’s Raney, Lasky Edit Book that Serves as Guide for Implementing Integrated Care

Integrated Care: A Guide for Effective Implementation is co-edited by HMA’s Lori Raney, MD and Gina Lasky, PhD, MAPL and Collaborative Care Consulting’s Clare Scott, LCSW. The book provides a detailed, thoughtful, and experience-based guide to effective implementation of integrated behavioral healthcare. Using evidence and on the ground experience, the authors share practical and actionable advice for a complex model of care.

The advantages of integrated care span clinical, operational, financial and population health perspectives, including better detection of illness, improvement in overall health outcomes, a better patient care experience, flexibility in responding to policy and financial changes, and an emphasis on return on investment.

The book is organized into three sections: design elements and organizational readiness, changing practice as a provider, and operational considerations, including policy and performance measurement. Additionally, HMA’s Gaylee Morgan, Rob Werner and Kristan McIntosh co-authored a chapter on financing integrated care programs.
