Accountable care organizations, integrated health systems, and government agencies are prioritizing behavioral health as the next major quality initiative. Leaders across the health care landscape can prepare their organizations by being informed about this increasingly important market.

Our Behavioral Health Market 2015-2017 report includes a review of the recent literature on behavioral health, with a particular emphasis on behavioral health integration and ACOs. We evaluate successful behavioral health programs and explore initiatives funded by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation. You’ll also find overviews of large behavioral health providers, as well as an analysis of issues and opportunities facing this market.
