Mental Health Help in the Portal

We’ve recently added a Diagnosis Module on Anxiety Disorders. Written with the primary care clinician in mind, the module provides descriptions of the various types of anxiety, the role of the medical home, ICD-10 codes, practice guidelines, screening tools, management strategies including medication information, informational resources, and local community and mental health service providers.
The Portal along with Utah 2-1-1 and Help Me Grow Utah, participated in a recent webinar titled Community Connections for Behavioral Health Services: Linking and Supporting Your Clinical Work as a part of the Behavioral Health Outreach Webinar Series presented by the Utah Chapter of the AAP, Primary Children's Hospital, & the University of Utah. The webinar was an opportunity to show providers the Portal’s Utah Services Directory
The Portal is working to add even more private mental & behavioral health providers in the Utah Services Directory. Our survey asks for providers’ credentials, experience with different mental health conditions, treatment approaches used, and training in trauma informed care.
The Medical Home Portal and the Bureau of CSHCN’s Integrated Services Program (ISP) encourage medical homes to ask for assistance when faced with complex cases. For care coordination help and more information, click on the Get Help in Utah link, or give the ISP team a call at 1-844-863-0311.

We are still working on the agenda, but there has been a lot of interest in coordinating/ collaborating with insurers and insurer care managers. Please help us understand what specifically you’d like to have answered from insurers to allow us to reach out to them in preparation for this event.
