Q: What is Integrated Care?
A: Cherokee Health Systems believes in a type of holistic care called Integrated Care. This biopsychosocial approach to health care addresses the whole person by integrating behavioral services into primary care. By combining the best traditions of primary care (adult, family practice, pediatric) and mental health services the integrated health care team is able to treat the whole person - mind and body so all patient needs are met. Behavioral health consultants work within a primary care setting and are involved in on site and timely assessment, brief intervention and consultation with patients. Services include education, behavioral management and treatment for mental health disorders. After meeting with a physician or nurse, a psychologist may assess and treat patients with behavioral concerns and work with the medical provider regarding referral questions and follow-up.
