This month's BHH webinar highlighted work done by MaineCare with the Muskie School of Public Service. They have developed a library of resources to help build and strengthen competencies and knowledge of Health Home Coordinators as it relates to their work in the field. We wrapped up with conversation from BHH Health Home Coordinators in the field and heard their experiences providing services to their clients.


During the February 25, 2016 Learning Session for Behavioral Health Homes, Catherine Ryder, Executive Director of Tri-County Mental Health Services, shared her organization's experience in developing and building a Behavioral Health Home in Maine.  This is a great listen if you're just starting out building a Behavioral Health Home program, need enlightening ideas for your existing BHH program, or want to know more about the Behavioral Health Home model.


The BHH monthly webinar was held on July 12th featuring BHHOs sharing their personal experience working on quality improvement projects over the past year. Both new and veteran BHHOs gained a better perspective on how to construct and implement their own quality improvement projects.

The Behavioral Health Home monthly webinar was held on Tuesday April 12th from 12:00-1:00pm and featured presenters Simonne Maline from the Consumer Council System of Maine and Elaine Ecker from NAMI Maine.

They took a deeper look into the Peer support specialist role and how they are pioneering their part of the Behavioral Health Homes team.


During the December 8th monthly webinar, we discussed the many successes of BHHOs within the 10 Core Expectations.


The BHH monthly webinar held on November 10th featured Kathy Cummings, RN, MA, Project Manager for the Institute for Clinical Improvement, with highlights from the RARE Collaborative: Mental Health Care Transitions, a yearlong learning collaborative for organizations with inpatient mental health units.

The Reducing Avoidable Readmissions Effectively (RARE) Collaborative out of Minnesota calls upon hospitals and their partners along the care continuum to focus on five key areas known to improve care and thereby reduce avoidable hospital readmissions. The issues that influence avoidable readmissions are many and complex. Improvement work needs to be done in each care setting and across care settings to make an impact.


We hope you found this webinar helpful in building strategies to reduce readmissions, and improve your patients transition into post-acute care.

In this month's Behavioral Health Learning Collaborative monthly webinar Julie Shackley, RN, MSN, President and CEO of Androscoggin Home Care and Hospice shared highlights from their Hospital to Home pilot with CMMC (Central Maine Medical Center), including some pilot results, readmission rates and needs identified during hospital to home visits. Dr. Tom Sneed, Medical Director from Tri-County Mental Health Services also joined in to highlight how his behavioral health team is looking to partner with Androscoggin Home Health (a local Community Care Team-CCT) to support their clients needs. This information will also help Behavioral Health Home Organizations identify strategies to support their clients in appropriately use of the Emergency Room.


The BHH August webinar focuses on strategies for health integration.  BHHO Team members Angela Fileccia, Director of Care Management, Penobscot Community Health Center, and Melissa Tremblay, Clinical Manager and Amy Lafontaine, Integrated Team Manager from Tri-County Mental Health Services shared highlights from their participation in a re4view of best practices for integrated care highlighted in A Guidebook of Professional Practices for Behavioral Health and Primary Care: Observations from Exemplary Sites, published by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).


The focus of the July 14, 2015 Behavioral Health Homes Learning Collaborative monthly webinar, Building a Successful Team for Quality Improvement, was forming the right QI team, develop leadership, and aligning teams to achieve QI goals.

Liz Miller, BHH Project Manager, and Mary Beyer, BHH Quality Improvement Specialist, welcomed Sue Butts-Dion, Quality Counts' Quality Improvement Consultant on the panel for this webinar. Sue Butts-Dion serves as Improvement Specialist/Advisor for Maine Quality Counts for Kids, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement and the National Institute for Children's Healthcare Quality. 

Our presenters delved into the roles of a team, what is it that distinguishes a collection of people from a team, stages of team development, processes for successful changes, tools for Forming, Storming, Norming, Performing and Adjourning, and how the BHH Learning Collaborative can assist BHHO with core expectations and their QI projects.

On May 27 we heared from leaders in primary care and behavioral health about the importance of and exciting opportunity to strengthen collaboration between primary care and behavioral health through the MaineCare Behavioral Health Homes initiative.  Leaders from both fields, including Noah Nesin, MD, FAAFP, Catherine Ryder, LCPC, ACS, and several others discussed the value of these partnerships to both care teams and patients as well as strategies to develop or strengthen such partnerships moving forward.



This Behavioral Health Homes Webinar aired on Tuesday, March 10th.

This episode spotlights two health promotion programs in Maine. The first, Let's Go, is a statewide child obesity prevention program with a goal to increase physical activity and healthy eating for children.
