Behavioral Health Screening Tools

The integrated care movement has facilitated a greater understanding of the numerous ways that physical and behavioral health are intertwined and must be addressed through comprehensive approaches incorporating all dimensions of a person’s wellness. Consider these startling figures: among veterans diagnosed with diabetes, providing access to as few as 3 behavioral health visits produced estimated savings of up to $181,460,247 in inpatient costs, along with an additional estimated savings of over a billion dollars in outpatient and pharmacy costs (Egede et al., 2014). In order to provide for effective and comprehensive interventions that include high quality behavioral healthcare, a critical first step is recognizing that a problem exists. Behavioral health screening can improve the identification of disorders that may have otherwise gone unnoticed and untreated, facilitate referrals to needed services, and reduce adverse outcomes. It can be implemented relatively rapidly and in a variety of healthcare settings. Most tools require minimal time and effort on the provider’s part, yet the benefits are significant in helping to avoid complications, achieving treatment goals more rapidly, and reducing the overall cost of care. This course will provide a review of some of the most widely used behavioral health screening tools currently available for use in integrated care settings. In addition, we will explore important factors for consideration when implementing behavioral health screening tools into the workflow of the practice.
