Integrated care, the systematic coordination of general physical and behavioral healthcare, promotes improved outcomes and offers an effective approach to helping people with co-occurring healthcare conditions. To learn more, join this expert panel discussion on the current state of integrated care and its impact on population health, including case studies on how digital solutions can reduce costs, enhance care quality and extend access. This engaging conversation will go beyond theoretical benefits of digital, evidence-based applications to focus on real-world results and impacts.

This presentation will include Dr. Manuel Castro, Medical Director of Behavioral Health Integration at Atrium Health; Julia Hoffman, Psy.D., VP of Behavioral Health Strategy at Livongo and the former National Director of Mental Health Services for the Department of Veterans Affairs; and Dr. Joe Parks, Medical Director for the National Council for Behavioral Health. The expert panel will share their experiences and perspectives related to the importance of integrating behavioral and primary healthcare into individual treatment plans. Dr. Hoffman will also highlight Livongo’s solutions that empower people with chronic conditions to live better and healthier
lives. Additionally, the webinar will cover how Livongo’s acquisition of myStrength’s digital behavioral health platform will facilitate a single clinical-grade solution that more fully addresses the health of the whole person.

Attendees will explore:

  • An overview of the current state of integrated medical-behavioral healthcare including industry trends and dynamics
    How an integrated approach helps people more effectively address their physical health conditions once they learn how to reduce the pervasive impact of behavioral health conditions in their lives
  • A case study from Atrium Health on how they’ve incorporated digital behavioral health tools within their diabetes care management program and primary care practices
  • Livongo’s mission to “Silence Noisy Healthcare”
