How Staffing Solutions Like Co-Location Serve Integration, Anchorage, Alaska

Recently, health professionals have begun to take a more holistic approach to health services, offering integrated platforms and expanded treatment options. According to health management company Laux Consulting Group in Anchorage, co-location, an integrated service, enables primary care physicians and behavioral health experts to provide enhanced care to patients by functioning as a team.

According to a study from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), co-location is an effective way to prevent chronic disease by improving the frequency of a number of patients’ primary care visits. The CDC found that having a primary care unit alongside a behavioral health one, or vice-versa, improves the likelihood of patients with mental health problems returning for more treatment.

Co-location serves integration by cutting out the middleman. Rather than taking a “treat and refer” approach, it allows health professionals to work in tandem and cuts down on the amount of time between each treatment. This allows better chances for the patient to receive the care they need, and less wait time treating serious physical and mental health problems.

Integrating and co-location can also offer added benefits to childcare, allowing pediatricians to provide expanded care and services. It can allow health professionals to efficiently treat a host of issues, including chronic disorders, obesity, substance abuse, and more.

For more information about how co-location is the first step toward providing integrated health services, contact Alaska’s experts in health management solutions, Laux Consulting Group, at (907) 227-8859. They also specialize in vendor management, revenue recovery, financial management, and more.
