The IMPACT service stands for Improving Mood-Promoting Access to Collaborative Treatment.
This streamlined approach to care will increase access to effective depression treatment for patients in Central Wyoming, decrease depression, and improve the overall well-being of the individuals and families served by CHCCW.
With the CHCCW IMPACT Team: You get the best care if you participate actively with your primary care provider.
Your Primary health care provider (PCP) will oversee all aspects of your care at CHCCW. Your provider will work closely with the other members of the care team to make sure you get the best care possible.
Care managers work closely with you and your provider to implement your treatment plan, and to monitor your progress.
The psychiatric nurse practitioner is an expert consultant to the Primary Care Provider and the Care Manager. The team psychiatric consultant is available to advise your care team about diagnostic questions or treatment options, to ensure you are receiving the best care possible.
