The Collaborative Care Model (CoCM): An Evidence- and Team-Based Care Approach to Integrating Behavioral Health into Primary Care
Collaborative Care, originally developed by the University of Washington, is a cost-effective, evidence-based integrated behavioral health care model. The primary care provider, behavioral health care manager, and psychiatric consultant function as a team, using a shared care plan, to meet the needs of patients with mild to moderate behavioral health concerns.
The Michigan Center for Clinical Systems Improvement (MiCCSI), Michigan Institute for Care Management and Transformation (MICMT), and Michigan Collaborative Care Implementation Support Team (MCCIST) have been contracted by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan for this project.
