We calculated total number of behavioral healthcare (BH) visits per patient; we defined treatment participation as at least one visit with the BHCM. We defined clinically significant improvement in the PHQ-9 as a change of 5 points (Lowe, Kroenke, Herzog, & Grafe, 2004) or posttreatment score less than 10 and a 50% reduction in scores from baseline (Kroenke et al., 2001).
Thus, patients valued a BHCM with expertise in addressing a range of mental, physical, and psychosocial health concerns.
Referrals typically involved warm hand-offs; on rare occasions when the BHCM was unavailable or patients were in a hurry, clinicians gave patients written referrals and asked them to call for an appointment.
In contrast to other experiences with health care, participants reported a strong therapeutic relationship with the BHCM, emphasizing feeling heard, known, and validated.
Relatively low referral and participation rates contributed to lower than expected BHCM caseload, while screening and service acceptance rates were relatively high.

In fact, the solutions obtained by BHCM are in agreement with the observation of Bataineh et al.
Here we will apply the proposed block hybrid collocation method (BHCM) to solve the third order ODEs (29).
Table 5 demonstrates that BHCM performs slightly better compared to Mechee et al.
Table 7 shows that BHCM manages to achieve the numerical result which agrees to six decimal places when compared to Mechee et al.
It is obvious that BHCM require less steps to obtain the solution compared to Mechee et al.
