Behavioral Health: Identification and Awareness
1. Increase screenings for depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, and substance use disorders.
2. When screenings are positive, increase and improve primary care-based interventions, and, when appropriate, referrals and successful engagement in specialty services.
1. Normalize the public’s perception of accessing resources for depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, and substance use.
The following RHIP Health Indicator Metrics apply to the Behavioral Health: Identification and Awareness Workgroup:
1. Number of SBIRT/CRAFFT screenings provided in healthcare settings shall exceed 12% (Oregon Health Authority, 2015).
2. Number of Depression screenings and follow-up care provided in healthcare settings shall exceed 25% (Oregon Health Authority, 2015).
3. First year develop a baseline of successful referral and engagement in specialty care from primary care. Second year develop performance improvement benchmarks.
