Not your typical doctor’s office: how team care improves health
Every year in the U.S., employees with mental health conditions struggle, leading to the loss of more than 200 million work days and costing nearly $17 billion dollars in employee productivity. More holistic, coordinated healthcare is more critical than ever to keeping employees healthy and in turn lowering employer healthcare costs. In this episode, learn how teams of healthcare providers in Michigan are working together to treat the whole person, including physical, mental or social needs, and the impact this approach has on health and healthcare costs. Listen to our conversation with Dr. William Beecroft, Medical Director for Behavioral Health for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, Dr. Jonathan Henry, an East Lansing-based psychiatrist and Dr. David Winston, a participating primary care provider in Ann Arbor, Michigan. They describe a patient’s journey through their model, share success stories and spell out what happens in the workplace when employees are healthier in mind and body.

Why integrated healthcare matters to employees now
Did you know that behavioral health conditions can exacerbate chronic health conditions and make them harder—and up to two to three times more expensive—to treat? Taking a full-health approach that integrates the care of mind and body is a key way to deliver better overall health. If you're working hard to keep employees healthy during this incredibly stressful time, how do you ensure employees receive that kind of care? Learn about your options from two healthcare experts: primary care Dr. Brian Klausner and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina's Susan Foosness.
