The CoCM is an integrated care model that integrates effective psychiatric care into primary care practices. It is the only model with a clear evidence base and has been tested in more than 80 randomized controlled trials. The CoCM is attractive to psychiatrists because it:
- Allows for greater professional flexibility for psychiatrists as they are able to practice part-time in the model
- Increases access for patients by allowing psychiatrists more time to care for sicker patients
- Improves patient outcomes, better patient and provider satisfaction, and reductions in health care costs
