About the Program
The District of Columbia’s Department of Health Care Finance in partnership with the DC Department of Behavioral Health, manages a five-year program, known as the Integrated Care Technical Assistance (ICTA) Program. The ICTA program will enhance your practice’s capability to deliver person-centered care across the care continuum; use population health analytics to address complex medical, behavioral health, and social needs; and engage leadership to support value-based care.
We offer several options for participation, including individual practice coaching, webinar sessions, learning collaboratives, and this virtual learning community.
Subject matter experts from Health Management Associates (HMA), a leading independent national research and consulting firm, will be providing the training and technical assistance.
What is Integrated Care?
- The systemic approach to provide person-centered care for a defined population that coordinates physical and behavioral healthcare through a team of primary care and behavioral health practitioners, working with the people served, families, and other natural and informal supports.
- Integrated care models ensure that mental health, substance use disorder, primary care, and specialty services are coordinated and delivered in a manner that is most effective in caring for people with multiple health care needs and produces the best outcomes.
The ICTA Program focuses on serving the practice transformation needs of seven priority groups:
- Health Home providers
- Department of Behavioral Health providers
- Federally Qualified Health Centers
- Free standing mental health providers
- Long-term services and supports providers, including home health agencies
- Certified or waivered medications for addiction treatment (MAT) providers, including methadone providers
- Specialty providers
The ICTA program launched in January 2021, with offerings listed below.
- Access program updates and resources through this website.
- Engage in virtual learning sessions and webinars to learn and share best practices with other providers and partners.
- Enroll in individual practice coaching. Participating provider teams will receive individualized support from an HMA coach and will be expected to participate in all group learning sessions over a minimum one-year period to work toward practice transformation goals
