A paper by Dr. Marisa Domino and Mental Health colleagues is in press at the premier journal, Health Services Research
Drs. Marisa Domino, Joe Morrissey, and Mona Kilany (T32 alum) have a paper in press at the premier journal, Health Services Research. The paper, entitled “Through the Looking Glass: Estimating Effects of Medical Homes for People with Severe Mental Illness,” found positive associations between medical homes and access to primary care, specialty mental health care, greater medication adherence, lower emergency room use, and greater expenditures. According to the study, expanding access to primary care-based medical homes for people with severe mental health illness may not save money for insurance providers, due to greater access for important outpatient services with little cost offset.
