Behavioral Health Technical Assistance and Resources

Technical assistance and supports for CCO 2.0 requirements

The 2020 CCO contracts contain a variety of new and updated requirements regarding behavioral health integration, including a focus on children’s behavioral health. The Transformation Center is working with subject matter experts to provide supports to CCOs in meeting these requirements. Additional opportunities will be posted as they become available.

Behavioral Health HIT Learning Collaborative Session

On September 1st, OHA sponsored a virtual Behavioral Health Learning Collaborative to assist behavioral health organizations with their adoption or upgrade of electronic health record (EHR) systems and adoption of health information exchange tools. Funding was provided through a SAMHSA grant and content was developed through the recommendations of the Health Information Technology Oversight Council Behavioral Health HIT Workgroup. The event provided an opportunity to hear from colleagues and experts on best practices, lessons learned, successes and challenges around EHR adoption and upgrade, and health information exchange.
