The Network Sees Rapid Growth of Behavioral Health Providers

Published On: March 23, 2016

The Network recently surpassed the milestone of 100 participants, and behavioral health providers have been a key part of that surge in growth. The decision in February by the Arizona Health-e Connection (AzHeC) Board to adopt a statewide strategy to integrate physical and behavioral health information in The Network also extended the elimination of provider participation fees to behavioral health providers. This move is part of an overall effort to incentivize participation and care coordination among all community providers statewide.

We profile four of the 17 recently added behavioral health care providers that have joined The Network below. For a complete list of Network participants click here: Network participants
