Contribute to new AMA-RAND research

03/07/2019

Contribute to new AMA-RAND research: The RAND Corporation and American Medical Association are conducting research to better understand and describe how physician practices in a variety of specialties and practice arrangements (independent, IPA, health system, etc)   that have integrated behavioral health care into the range of services they offer. If you’ve integrated behavioral health care in your practice, whether you’re in the early stages or have a well-established program, we are asking for your participation in this research project. This phone interview-based research will enable the AMA to provide physicians with training and resources needed to effectively implement and manage behavioral health care in their practices. If you’re interested and available to participate, please contact Mark Friedberg, MD, MPP, RAND Senior Physician Policy Researcher
