Collaborative Care Model for Pediatrics

Friday, September 21, 2018
Community Health of Central Washington – Yakima

Explore the Collaborative Care model and learn about bringing integrated, financially sustainable behavioral health care into the pediatric primary care setting.

The University of Washington’s AIMS Center is a national leader in the Collaborative Care model to bring high quality mental health services into familiar settings, to get patients and families the care they need – where and when they need it – and monitor outcomes over time. This evidence-based model has resulted in positive outcomes for adults, and WCAAP is working with the AIMS Center to understand its potential for children and youth within primary care.


  • Anna Ratzliff, MD, PhD from the AIMS Center will present the Collaborative Care model, including clinical and financial considerations.
  • Sheryl Morelli, MD, FAAP will share the experience of the UW Neighborhood Kent/Des Moines Clinic with integrating care for kids, using collaborative care and other models.
  • Daniel Smith, VP of Clinical Integration and interim Executive Director at the Southwest Washington Accountable Community of Health will discuss ACH and payor considerations and priorities for the integration of primary and behavioral healthcare for children and youth.
