You’ve likely heard of behavioral health; the term is most often used in reference to mental and emotional health conditions, such as depression, anxiety, and substance abuse.
The field of behavior health, however, is less well known and focuses more discretely on the daily actions that a patient engages in that affect their health in both positive and negative ways. Research has shown again and again that individual health outcomes are largely driven by our personal, daily behaviors, and therefore, these behaviors are essential for preventing and managing lifestyle-related chronic conditions such as prediabetes, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, heart disease, and hypertension.
This webinar will focus on the importance of measuring and addressing behavior health.
Topics will include:
- The distinction between behavioral health and behavior health
- The key self-management behaviors that comprise good behavior health
- Effective clinical approaches to behavior change
- Guidance for integrating the measurement and treatment of self-management behaviors into your care management program
Learn more about how providers and health systems can supplement their strategy to address behavioral health conditions with a robust plan and clinical tools for systematically measuring and addressing patients’ daily behaviors.
