Judging criteria for the TAFP Behavioral Health Integration Innovators Competition
To be eligible, entries must be from a primary care practice in Texas. Individuals and teams that participate must select a setting of care and develop a submission.
The judges will assign equal weight to each of the following two main evaluation criteria when evaluating the submissions:
Is this a great innovation?
Questions judges will be asking when evaluating this criterion will include:
— First and foremost, is this feasible for family physicians?
— Are the best practices clear, concise, and measurable?
— Has the team done what is required better than other competitors?
Will this innovation make a significant impact?
Judges will imagine that entries will inspire others to integrate behavioral health services in their practices.
— Do they tackle the underlying integration barriers?
— Is the model broadly applicable across a variety of practice environments and patient populations?
— Have they clearly described the impact of their model?
