Behavioral Health Treatment Insights and Provider Support

Pediatric behavioral health concerns have continued to rise in the community. The primary care providers and patient-centered medical homes (PCMH) in the local communities are often the first line and best places for early identification and management of mild to moderate behavioral health presentations.

Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Partners For Kids have been focused on local capacity building through educational initiatives like Project ECHO, behavioral health webinars and targeted trainings.

To expand the active support to primary care practices, Nationwide Children’s Big Lots Behavioral Health has launched BH-TIPS (Treatment Insights and Provider Support), an on-demand, telehealth-based consultation program to connect with Nationwide Children’s psychiatrists and resource clinicians.

Providers can schedule virtual appointment to receive provider-to-provider consultation regarding:
• Screening, assessment, and diagnostic clarification
• Principles of medication management to fit the specific clinical needs
• Non-medication management modalities based on diagnosis
• Information about behavioral health resources and linkages in the local communities

The consultation is offered in 15-minute time slots Monday through Friday from noon to 2 p.m. The consultation could be directly scheduled here.

Book here.

The main goal of BH-TIPS program is to support primary care providers through educational consultation and information about resources in their communities for timely access to care for children with behavioral health needs. For more information about the program, providers can contact BHOfficehours@NationwideChildrens.org or Ujjwal.ramtekkar@NationwideChildrens.org
