“Behavioral Health providers work within a Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model that works to improve health outcomes through care coordination and optimizing health outcomes. The PCMH model at HMS combines a new level of teamwork and technology to deliver care that is more personalized, comprehensive, coordinated, and convenient, resulting in better health outcomes.”

Behavioral Health providers work in a team-based approach to deliver comprehensive care and integrated services, and patients participate in decisions involving their health care and treatment.
