Behavioral risks and disorders are responsible for 40% of deaths, $300 billion in healthcare costs, and $600 billion in additional expenditures yearly in the United States.  The US Preventive Services Task Force and other authorities recommend screening and intervention for tobacco, alcohol, drugs, depression, and obesity, but few healthcare settings deliver these services in an evidence-based manner.  The major barrier is provider and staff time. With funding from SAMHSA and AHRQ since 2006, the Wisconsin Initiative to Promote Healthy Lifestyles and its spin-off, Wellsys, LLC, have helped dozens of clinics implement systematic behavioral screening and intervention (BSI). WIPHL and Wellsys help clinics hire staff to serve as "health educators," provide training and ongoing development for health educators, support clinics on modifying workflow and documentation flow, and offer software to guide clinical service delivery, automate business practices and conduct population health management.  Over 150,000 patients have been screened, and behavioral outcomes parallel those attained in prior randomized controlled trials.  Now under CDC funding, BSI is expanding to improve outcomes for diabetes, hypertension and lipid disorders.  Please join us to learn why and how you might consider implementing BSI in your healthcare setting.
