Reports & Presentations
New Hampshire residents will benefit from a health care system that integrates behavioral health into primary care, according to a report released by the University of New Hampshire’s Institute for Health Policy and Practice (IHPP) and the New Hampshire Citizens Health Initiative (NHCHI).
The learning collaborative also included the identification and exploration of challenges in payment for substance use disorder screening and treatment. According to the report, the state’s current opiate epidemic highlights the need for better screening for behavioral health issues, prevention and treatment referral in primary care.
The research, conducted in partnership with 60 organizations, is based on a philosophy of shared data and shared learning that emphasizes the importance of transparency across all stakeholder groups.
Twenty-five to 30 percent of visits for primary medical care either originate from or have a significant related behavioral health component. Research also found that depression and anxiety with a co-occurring chronic medical condition increase costs dramatically.
