"The two words ‘information’ and ‘communication’ are often used interchangeably, but they signify quite different things. Information is giving out; communication is getting through." -- Sydney J. Harris



On August 9, the American Psychiatric Association will host an event in the Twin Cities – Advancing and Sustaining Integrated Care in Minnesota. Integrating effective behavioral health into primary care through the Collaborative Care Model (CoCM) is evidence-based and shown to improve outcomes, prevent downstream health costs, and improve access to mental health services. At this event, participants will learn how health systems can implement this model, including practical strategies such as how services can be billed through the new CMS collaborative care management codes. Information and registration can be found on the American Psychiatric Association site.
