CTC-RI/PCMH Kids Presents at the Milbank Multi-Payer Primary Care Network Virtual Seminar

  • 12 Oct 2021

CTC-RI/PCMH Kids was invited to present at the Milbank Multi-Payer Virtual Seminar on the work that Rhode Island is doing to improve linkages between primary care and maternal-child health practitioners. Pat Flanagan, MD FAAP, Co-Chair of PCMH Kids highlighted the foundational work done by PCMH Kids in creating a robust learning community that has enabled pediatric practices to test integrating behavioral health into pediatric primary care. Building on this experience, Susanne Campbell presented on the work that CTC-RI has done, in partnership with RI Department of Health, to build a learning community among OB/GYN providers who are implementing universal screening for depression, anxiety and substance use disorders among pregnant and postpartum women. Our work supporting healthy moms and healthy babies is anticipated to continue evolving with health plan support for community health workers, doulas, and our Healthy Tomorrows initiative that is working to improve care coordination between pediatric practices and family visiting organizations.
