Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (Children’s) is seeking a collaborative leader with a strong clinical foundation to serve as a Psychiatrist for a new Clinic and Co-Management opportunity within Children’s Behavioral and Mental Health (BMH).
Outpatient Referral Clinic
Children’s is working to combat the stigma related to behavioral and mental health while also ensuring our most vulnerable patients receive access to outpatient services that will improve their quality of life and ability to thrive. The goal is to better serve this population of patients and increase the continuity of their care, moving towards a more connected model of “whole-child” care. The Outpatient Referral Clinic will serve as a “hub” for the organization, providing a key point of access for internal providers to refer kids to who require more BMH care than they can obtain at their current place of care within the system. Children’s is working to open “hub” clinic in the Q3 2021.
Co-management is a multidisciplinary and integrated approach to care that aims to integrate BMH resources into primary care practices while promoting a shared responsibility for the patient’s care. The goal of co-management is to foster partnerships between pediatricians and BMH experts to encourage this collaborative approach while increasing access to BMH care. Our embedded clinicians will support school, behavioral, and emotional challenges, as well as diagnoses such as anxiety and depression requiring further evaluation. This innovative approach requires a pilot phase, planned to begin in the spring of 2021, during which Children’s will implement multiple care models that include a psychologist, licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) and care navigator in separate practice locations to subsequently study, measure, adjust in order to expand over to additional primary care practices over time.
As a psychiatrist for the Behavioral and Mental Health Outpatient Referral Clinic and Co-Management model for Children’s, the Psychiatrist will participate in a model of care centered around integrated, multidisciplinary services, with seamless collaborations with psychiatry, psychology, social work, medical specialties and other behavioral and mental health disciplines.
