Current health care strategies in the United States often lead to fragmented care delivery, poor health outcomes and excessive costs. Adopting a new model of coordinated and integrated care can reverse this trend and reduce these burdens.
Combining physical and mental health care and substance use treatment is vital to address the health care needs of individuals and better serve vulnerable populations, including those with comorbid behavioral and physical health conditions.
Integrated care emphasizes a team-based approach to address the needs of the whole person. Without integration, mental illness and substance use disorders will continue to go undetected and untreated.
Join us on Thursday, February 24th from 1:00-2:00pm ET for our upcoming webinar: Integrated Care: Charting a Path Forward, to hear from experts in the field as we explore the current state of integration and learn more about the comprehensive health integration framework.
