Integrated Care InitiativesHow do we support integrated care in Alaska?
Starting in the Fall of 2021, Recover Alaska supported the launch of a collaborative that consisted of primary and behavioral health providers serving the Mat-Su area. All levels of care were represented among the providers and peer support case coordinators were assigned to participants. The collaborative determined how they would work together to support better integration of care for clients, and agreed to track various measures to see how the co-designed processes for working together affected client outcomes. Shared Releases of Information, Memorandums of Agreements, and shared intake paperwork were developed by the group to support decreasing barriers for clients when accessing services and staying engaged in addressing all areas of wellness.
Multi-disciplinary teams met on a regular basis to review client needs, revise procedures, and work through barriers. Action Data Consultants facilitated the process to help with gathering data and providing materials that could be used by other communities. Below includes resources developed and able to be replicated to support integration of care in other communities:
