The mission of CTC-RI is to support the continuing transformation of primary care in Rhode Island as the foundation of an ever-improving integrated, accessible, affordable, and equitable health care system. CTC-RI brings together critical stakeholders to implement, evaluate and spread effective multi-payer models to deliver, pay for and sustain high-quality, comprehensive, accountable primary care.
It is widely recognized that unaddressed Behavioral Health (BH) conditions increase suffering and total cost of care and that BH drives 60-80% of all visits to Primary Care (PC). Building and supporting the delivery of integrated behavioral health care at PCP sites is fundamental and necessary to improve quality of life and to decrease inefficient utilization of health care services and dollars.
The Care Transformation Collaborative of Rhode Island (CTC-RI) has designed, implemented and evaluated IBH models and provides workforce and practice development programs.
