"Collaborate with Providers to build Capacity, Exceptional Care and Sustainability"
Integration of Behavioral Health and General Medical Services (Primary/Physical Care) has been an intensive focus for at least a decade (APA and APM, 2016 Integrated Care Report)
United Providers of Health (UPOH) provides training and certifies Providers and organization in an Integrated Care best practice model. We use a model that is a team-based, interdisciplinary approach to deliver evidence-based diagnoses, treatment, and follow- up care. The model differs from other attempts to integrate behavioral health services because of the replicated evidence supporting its outcomes, its steady reliance on consistent principles of chronic care delivery, and attention to accountability and quality improvement. Our model is a measurement-guided with a consistent dedication to patient-reported outcomes and utilizes evidence based approaches to achieve those outcomes.
Additionally, it is patient-centered with proactive outreach to engage, activate, promote self-management and treatment adherence, and coordinate services. It is a team led approach. We show you how your team will implement a measurement-guided care plan based on evidence-based practice guidelines and focuses particular attention on patients not meeting their clinical goals. This model is flexible and can be implemented across varied geographic locations, practice sizes, and patient populations.
UPOH over the past three years of implementing Integrated Care with various Providers throughout North Carolina and over the past five years have been researching Integrated Care. We are embracing the rapid change in Healthcare and have adopted an "Integrated Care Model".
Please feel free to give us a call on how you can implement Integrated Care as Provider (Physical and Mental) agency.

Our team will support you in building a healthier you. No matter what your health needs are, having a team support you will keep you on the path to meeting them. We work together to connect you with the services you need. While most health systems are still operating in a primarily fee-for-service environment, many are working toward a value-based
care model in which the health system takes responsibility
for the outcomes and wellness of the patient population.
Value Base Purchasing: What is it?
Care management refers to a comprehensive suite of services and activities that help patients with chronic or complex conditions manage their health. Care management’s overarching goal is to improve patient health.
According to a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Americans living with chronic physical and mental health conditions account for 90% of the $3.3 trillion the U.S. spends each year on healthcare.
Some Elements of a Care Management Plan includes:
•Clinically, implementing toxicology screening will support providers in developing a more correct and scientific based diagnoses and treatment plan as well as the ability to collect data as another method to measure outcomes and service performance.
•Gather information about your practice; see what your patients are taking and see if what is being prescribed is working.
•Are your patients taking anything not prescribed? Are illegal narcotics involved? Are the prescribed medications in the patient’s system?
•Drug monitoring is the best way to keep track of what is going on in your practice
•Drug monitoring includes screening and confirmations
•Screening gives you the instant negative or positive answer while confirmations give you a more detailed look at exactly what may be in a patient’s system and how much.

We focus on collaborating on Health Disparities, issues that effect the Marginalized and Under-Served Communities with key focus on Rural areas.
A collaborative team is a group of individuals who share common beliefs and work towards common goals. Collaborative team members(Physical Care and Behavioral Care) spend time discussing what they hope to accomplish as a team and set team and individual goals for achieving "Whole Person Care".
Provider members encourage each other to interact and to take part in healthcare problem solving and decision-making activities, make decisions by consensus, poll each other for understanding of issues or ideas, and criticize ideas, but not each other.
