On Thursday Mintz Levin attorney Daria Niewenhous will be moderating an American Health Lawyers Association webinar entitled “Behavioral Health and ACOs—Challenges and Opportunities.” The webinar will address the integration of behavioral health services and primary care to manage population health. It will focus on the care improvements that can be realized by successfully integrating behavioral health into a patient-centered medical home and the legal and regulatory challenges associated with doing so. Additionally, the presenters will provide real life examples of a large ACO’s experience with integrating behavioral health and the impact on health outcomes and expense.
The webinar’s presenters include Alexander Blount, Ed.D (University of Massachusetts Medical School), Clifford Barnes, Esq. (Epstein, Becker & Green), Sree Chaguturu, MD (Partners HealthCare), and Trina Chang, MD, MPH (Partners HealthCare).
