Psychiatric Collaborative Care Program

Revitalist recognizes that people are unique. Because we are individuals with specific needs and wants, treatment will look differently for every patient who walks through our doors.

While behavioral healthcare is still considered by some as a specialty practice, the integration of behavioral health (BH) with primary care has become recognized as a valuable treatment model. It is an effective way to increase accessibility to more people while increasing outcomes at the same time.

What is the Psychiatric Collaborative Care Program?

Psychiatric Collaborative Care Model (CoCM) encompasses a structured approach to mental health care delivery that promotes systematic communication among team members during and outside of face-to-face patient encounters.

CoCM is a team approach utilizing three different types of healthcare professionals: the Behavioral Health Care Manager, the Psychiatric Consultant, and the Treating (Billing) Practitioner. This team approach consists of a mental health therapist, psychiatric nurse practitioner, and nurse practitioner. Each of these individuals plays an important role in assuring that the patient’s medical and behavioral health needs are being addressed comprehensively and effectively. The CoCM team will be able to address patient needs holistically, through medical care, mental health coaching, and psychiatric medication management.

Through the CoCM, a patient will be able to set mental health, physical health, and overall wellness goals with their team. The team will work alongside each patient to identify an individualized action plan on reaching those goals in a timely manner.

This program is a virtual service that serves those who are ages 12 and older.
