Webinar: Financing and Service Delivery Integration for Mental Illness and Substance Abuse
April 1 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Sponsored by the RWJF Systems for Action Research Program, Wednesday, April 1 | 12pm ET
Fragmentation and lack of coordination between health care delivery, public health, and community service systems represent a significant barrier to improving health, well-being, and equity. Drawing from health care, public health, social work, criminology, health economics, and biomedical informatics, researchers at Arizona State University are investigating system-level strategies that achieve alignment, partnership and synergy across the delivery and financing systems for medical care, public health, and social and community services, specifically by (1) using Participatory Action Research methodologies to investigate and identify gaps in how multisector services, delivery systems, and financing streams are currently aligned; (2) estimating and identifying redundancies, gaps, and bottle-necks in the current health system to understand the fragmented and siloed structure of health care for persons with behavioral health disorders; and (3) triangulating multisector evidence regarding alignment of financing and delivery systems.
