Health is the Whole Person
The Eugene S. Farley Center for Health Policy has developed a new framework for better integrating behavioral health and primary care. They’ve tackled two questions: what are the elements that a behavioral health provider needs to be successful in a primary care environment? How can they advance the integration of behavioral health more broadly across America by developing networks, sharing evidence, and tailoring solutions to unique state-by-state needs?
To support Farley’s vision of transforming the system to treat health as the whole person, Vermilion orchestrated a communications platform called “Make Health Whole.” We highlighted eight “competencies” for integration through a series of live-action and animated videos. And we embarked on a long-term program to activate integration efforts among providers, insurers, policymakers, educators and philanthropies on the state level.
