David Bartsch is a Senior Fellow with TriWest who provides research and evaluation assistance to a range of service programs, foundations, and states. Most recently, David has worked with programs that provide care to people needing integrated primary care and behavioral health services, programs for youth in child welfare, and programs that provide outreach to seniors.
Perhaps David’s most rewarding work has been with programs for people with behavioral health concerns who also have primary care needs. For example, his work with the Jefferson Center primary behavioral health care integration program helped establish a federally funded clinic that demonstrated successful health and behavioral health outcomes. In addition, David worked with the TriWest team that served as the statewide evaluator for the Colorado State Innovation Model effort to integrate primary and behavioral health care in primary care practice sites and Community Mental Health Centers.
When David is not working, he enjoys reading and outside activities such as hiking and working in the garden. He lives with his family in Louisville, Colorado, a small town in southeastern Boulder County.
David has a PhD in experimental psychology.
