A Process Evaluation of Primary Care Behavioral Health Integration in the Military Health System
Behavioral health (BH) problems are common in the military. Research suggests that primary care–behavioral health (PCBH) integration can improve BH outcomes. The authors conducted a process evaluation of the PCBH program in the military health system to understand program implementation and inform quality improvement. Findings are in four key areas: staffing/capabilities, valued tasks, program stewardship, and fostering program awareness/support.
