He is the Director of Dissemination and Implementation, and Research Professor in Integrated Behavioral Health, Biomedical Informatics and Biomedical Diagostics, and Science of Health Care Delivery at Arizona State University. He is co-Principal Investigator on the IBH-PC Comparative Effectiveness Trial supported through PCORI, to evaluate the outcomes of co-located and integrated models of behavioral care as part of primary care. He has designed, implemented, and evaluated the effectiveness of many integration projects in Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, OB-GYN, Neurology, Gastroenterology, Surgery, and Anesthesiology. Currently, he is Director of the Collaborative Care Research Network (CCRN), a sub network of the National Research Network (NRN), and Senior Scientist of the American Academy of Family Physicians. As Principal Investigator of an NIH research project, he developed a toolkit to assist practices, implement behavioral health, and health behavior care in primary care. He leads a national team of investigators that developed the Practice Integration Profile (PIP), an electronic practice level self-report identifying level of Primary Care Behavioral Health Integration. Supported by the Sunflower Foundation, he also leads a national consensus panel to develop integrated care metrics.
