Payer Perspective: Comorbidity Management (Physical and Behavioral)

 

This course is intended to teach the importance of treating behavioral health disorders that frequently exist alongside chronic physical health disorders, or comorbidities. Patients with chronic health disorders are costly to treat and sometimes overutilize the healthcare system. Through best practices and supporting self-management, these patients can see an improvement in their health outcomes and well-being. Providers will also see improved patient satisfaction scores as they focus on keeping patients healthy and regularly follow-up with their patients.
