The Tennessee Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics has partnered with BlueCare to develop the Behavioral Healthcare in Pediatrics (BeHiP) training program. BeHiP training provides pediatric healthcare providers with tools and strategies to screen for, assess, and manage patients with emotional, behavioral and substance abuse concerns. It also encompasses strategies to provide for more efficient workflow (including information on coding), more effective care, and improved family and physician relationships.
