Lexicon of Collaborative Care

This lexicon is a set of concepts and definitions developed by expert consensus for what we mean by behavioral health and primary care integration, a functional definition, what things look like in practice. A consensus lexicon enables effective communication and concerted action among clinicians, care systems, health plans, payers, researchers, policymakers, business modelers and patients working for effective, widespread implementation on a meaningful scale.
