Integrated behavioral health is the practice of combining different specialties into one comprehensive treatment package to best treat clients’ physical and behavioral symptoms. In order to truly provide integrated care, different specialties must be able to communicate with each other and seamlessly blend their services. Knowing that multidisciplinary care requires true teamwork, how do you integrate different specialties within your organization or with other providers?
