Behavioral Health Integration Capacity Assessment Tool

The Behavioral Health Integration Capacity Assessment (BHICA) is designed to assist behavioral health organizations in assessing their ability to integrate primary care services. The BHICA allows behavioral health organizations to evaluate their current processes related to three approaches to integrated care: coordinate care; co-locate care; or build primary care capacity in-house. The tool was developed by The Lewin Group and The Institute for Healthcare Improvement under a contract with the Medicare-Medicaid Coordination Office.

Information regarding the webinar that was conducted on March 28th to introduce the BHICA tool is available here.
