Service Line Strategy
The demand for behavioral healthcare is overwhelming, and many challenges lie ahead for providers seeking to meet this need. Which innovative strategies is your organization pursuing to increase access to care, improve outcomes, and maintain operational and financial sustainability?
The connection between physical and mental health is increasingly being acknowledged, which presents an opportunity to improve health outcomes and drive down the total cost of care. This more holistic understanding is emerging as disruptive market forces—such as legislative changes, expanded access, increased demand, limited provider supply, and a highly fragmented market—are creating both challenges and opportunities for innovation. Providers and payers must rise to the challenge and develop enduring strategies to meet the demands of emerging integrated care models, nontraditional partnerships, and value-based reimbursement.
How do providers and health systems address these challenges and opportunities while facing a strain on behavioral health resources and increased operating expenses? The opportunity for market consolidation and care delivery partnership—focused on integrated physical and behavioral healthcare—creates the potential for change to the care delivery model and reimbursement. ECG can help providers and payers navigate existing access issues, design new strategies, and optimize financial resources.

Behavioral health has gained recognition as one of the most important issues in healthcare. Legislation, provider shortages, and other factors were already driving significant disruption to this area, and COVID-19 has only increased demand for behavioral health services.

As value-based care contracting grows, health systems are increasingly seeking to impact the social determinants of health (SDOH), such as social issues, individual behavior, and environmental elements. Given that SDOH affect patients more than healthcare does, addressing them is key to an effective population health management strategy.
