New Curriculum Strengthens Peers’ Role in Integrated Health Delivery
The SAMHSA-HRSA Center for Integrated Health Solutions has developed a new peer support curriculum, Whole Health Action Management (WHAM), to promote whole health self-management and strengthen the peer workforce’s role in integrated healthcare delivery.
WHAM prepares the peer workforce to use person-centered planning to set achievable whole health goals and weekly action plans to create new health behavior by engaging in weekly WHAM groups. It also teaches basic health screens for prevention and shared decision making with health professionals.
Founded on researched chronic disease self-management programs such as HARP (Health and Recovery Peer Program) and science-based health and resiliency factors, like the Relaxation Response, WHAM was designed by peers for peers in recovery from mental illness and substance use disorders.
For more information on WHAM, visit http://www.integration.samhsa.gov/health-wellness/wham or contact Hannah Mason at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- SAMHSA-HRSA Center for Integrated Health Solutions (CIHS): CIHS Billing Worksheets Make Financing Integrated Services Easier
Financing is one of the key elements in integrating primary and behavioral healthcare services. Once you determine the best clinical model for your program, it is necessary to determine how the financing supports it. And while financing is often viewed as a barrier to sustaining primary and behavioral healthcare integration activities, there are nearly always means of reimbursement.
To help you bill Medicare and Medicaid optimally for integrated services, CIHS has developed customized billing and financial worksheets for each state that identify existing billing opportunities for services provided in integrated healthcare settings. For more information, go to http://www.integration.samhsa.gov.
