Models for deploying behavioral health (BH) integration may not be feasible for small rural practices with limited resources, particularly those that may not be able to hire a dedicated behavioral healthcare manager. Use of telehealth and shared staffing models may provide a solution. The COE will develop, pilot, and evaluate a telehealth-enabled BH integration program for use among its rural primary care sites. Initial focus of project will be on conducting mixed methods needs assessment among both MUSC and non- MUSC rural practice sites rooted in implementation science, followed by initial pilot of a telehealth-enabled BH integration model within select MUSC sites.
