New Project Launch for Expanding Pediatric IBH Capacity

  • 08 Dec 2023

CTC-RI is excited to kick off our new project this fall, Expanding Pediatric Integrated Behavioral Health Capacity. This is supported by funding from Blue Cross Blue Shield of RI and Point 32 Health|Tufts Health Plan, and is a collaboration with CTC-RI and the Foundation for Integrated Care (FIC).

This project aims to increase the number of RI pediatric providers who work in integrated behavioral health (IBH) programs by connecting interested clinicians with practices in need. This 12-month pilot will support the integration of an early career IBH clinician, hired by FIC, at a practice that is interested in expanding their pediatric IBH services. FIC will provide supervision and support for the clinician placed in the practice. The practice staff and IBH clinician will participate in monthly practice facilitation meetings to enhance team-based efforts and IBH capacity.

We are excited to announce the three practices chosen to participate in this project. Congratulations to:

  • Barrington Pediatrics
  • Northern Rhode Island Pediatrics
  • P.R.I.M.A Inc.
