Dr. Raney is a member of the American Psychiatric Association

She is a Senior Clinical Instructor in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Colorado, Denver School of Medicine, and former Medical Director for Axis Health System in Durango, Colorado. Dr. Raney is a principal with Health Management Associates.
"I think of Lori's work with the APA as being model for creating a tipping point in the profession of psychiatry...through a very aggressive and focused plan, she and the integrated care group have worked to create excitement in the early implementers and open minds in the skeptics. Their work was tied into the Council on Healthcare systems and finance to give it a place to tie into APA leadership, but it is a kind of example of "disruptive technology" in APA."

Dr. Raney established Collaborative Care Consulting to promote a flexible approach for Primary Care and Behavioral Health integration, while defining expanded roles for psychiatrists and primary care physicians in integrated/collaborative health care.
"Integrated Care is a structured approach to health care delivery, where general medical and behavioral health conditions are treated concurrently. The evidence base indicates that it improves outcomes, helps contain costs, and increases both patient & provider satisfaction."
