Integrated Care

Over the past decade, the integration of behavioral health and general medical services has been shown to improve patient outcomes, save money, and reduce stigma related to mental health. Significant research spanning three decades has identified one model – the Collaborative Care Model – in particular, as being effective and efficient in delivering integrated care.

A Psychiatrist’s Toolkit: Supervising NPs and PAs

Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants (NP/PA) have long played an important role in the provision of healthcare in North Carolina. NP/PAs have worked with psychiatrists in every practice setting—private practice, institutions, and particularly community mental health agencies. The traditional multi-disciplinary team approach of psychiatric care has instilled an appreciation for and reliance upon all clinicians in the care of this complex patient population, making the field uniquely situated to embrace the evolving health care delivery system of team-based care, collaborative care, accountable care, and shared savings. To that end, psychiatry’s ability to work with other professionals, to assess skills, and to assist in their development will be even more crucial.

Medicare Resources

Medicare was created in 1965 as part of the Social Security Act. The program was divided into two parts. Part A is hospital insurance and helps to pay for care provided in a hospital, skilled nursing facility, nursing home, or hospice. It covers the room, board, and ancillary charges billed directly by the facility. The covered portion of expenses is based on the number of days the patient has received care. Part B covers the professional services of physicians and nonphysician healthcare providers and a variety of outpatient services including x-rays, laboratory work, and durable medical equipment. As a psychiatrist, you will almost always be working with Part B.
