Our 90th Annual Fall Conference and Meeting: Integrating Care to Improve Public Health Outcomes: Primary Care | Behavioral Health | Public Health will explore efforts currently underway to integrate primary care and behavioral health, like AHCCCS' Complete Care Model and the Targeted Investment program which supports health care provider's to move toward greater integration of primary care and behavioral health.
We'll also explore the latest academic research that evaluates the outcomes of co-located and integrated models of behavioral care as part of primary care and evidence-based toolkits to assist practices including ways to measure progress.
We’ll conduct our AzPHA Annual Meeting over a delicious buffet lunch followed by our keynote address from the American Public Health Association President Joseph Telfair, DRPH, MSW, MPH. In our afternoon sessions, we’ll learn about new initiatives to work with managed care in two key areas that impact health outcomes: tobacco use and housing & homelessness.
We’ll close with a panel discussion with key leaders among Arizona’s Managed Care Organizations and Provider Organizations as they discuss priorities and strategies for integrating primary and behavioral health care and improving outcomes in Arizona.
After the conference we'll have a hosted reception as we celebrate AzPHA’s 90th Anniversary!
