View materials from this event hosted by Department of Health Care Finance, DBH Training Institute, & Integrated Care DC on May 9, 2023. The in-person workshop was designed for behavioral health providers and other organizations seeking to prepare for the integration of behavioral health into the District’s Medicaid Managed Care Program. Presenters shared information and facilitated exercises to help leadership, clinical and operational staff, and other stakeholders develop the organizational competencies needed to succeed in managed care, including an understanding of managed care principles, how to communicate effectively with managed care partners, and how to effectively demonstrate the value of care through quality measurement and population health.
This case-based, hands-on session will allow physical and behavioral health professionals to walk through the steps of engaging patients with different presentations and personalities in Advance Care Planning, codifying their wishes in Advance Directives, and making those Advance Directives accessible on the health information exchange. The session’s experiential design will help providers consolidate their skills, increase their comfort and confidence, and feel inspired to approach patients about Advance Care Planning with new ideas and tools. It will include ad hoc case discussions and time for providers to raise questions and concerns.
Among the many barriers to Advance Care Planning, patient reluctance and provider discomfort play large roles. In this highly interactive workshop, we’ll discuss concrete behavioral strategies for overcoming the fears that prevent patients from planning for end-of-life care or times when they are incapacitated. Specific topics include employing the spirit of Motivational Interviewing, normalizing doubts, and helping patients understand the benefits for their family members when they decline to plan. The importance of codifying patient wishes and uploading them to health information exchanges through AD Vault will be stressed. Case illustrations will be used throughout.
This interactive webinar will cover several key topics: clarifying the purpose and processes of Advance Care Planning; its importance for patient self-determination and reducing healthcare costs; providers’ roles as trusted guides in engaging patients in planning; and technological solutions for ensuring Advance Directives are widely downloadable when most needed. CRISP DC’s AD Vault will be introduced. Case illustrations will be used throughout.
This session will provide an open opportunity for DC Primary Care and Behavioral Health providers, practice administrators, care managers to drop in with questions or technical assistance requests. In this session, we will follow up on any questions or issues raised and unanswered in the first two sessions.
DC-based Medical Home Development Group, which successfully piloted CRISP DC HIE’s consent management tool, will discuss how it used the tool in its workflow and lessons learned. CRISP DC will also join the session to highlight key features and benefits of the consent management tool.
This webinar focuses on effective strategies for engaging justice-involved populations and ways to support individuals transitioning to communities.

The goal of the ICTA program is to improve care and Medicaid beneficiary outcomes within three practice transformation core competencies:
Delivering person-centered care across the care continuum
Using population health analytics to address complex medical, behavioral health, and social needs; and
Engaging leadership to support value-based care.
