The Academy Web Portal – A Resource Hub
Welcome to this new AHRQ Web portal where you will find the resources you need to advance the integration of primary care and behavioral health care and foster a collaborative environment for dialogue and discussion among relevant thought leaders.
This resource center will facilitate the work of the Academy by being a central hub for information, coordination, dissemination, and networking. The portal is structured around seven topics: Research, Education, Policy, Financing & Sustainability, Clinical & Community, Health Information Technology, Resources, and Collaboration.
Information related to integration will include evidence-based practices, descriptions of promising practices, and articles on methods used to acquire evidence. The portal will be enhanced by adding coordination, dissemination, and networking functions including Webinars and forums.
The Academy for Integrating Behavioral Health in Primary Care sponsored by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) is an important online tool for those interested in changing health care. View video description
