What Is Integrated Care?

Integrated care is the systematic coordination of physical and behavioral health care with a focus on treating the whole person. As chronic conditions and substance abuse rates continue to rise, it has become increasingly important for primary care, mental health, and substance use providers to come together to drive more successful and cost effective health outcomes.

There are many models of integrated care - from care coordination between primary care and behavioral health providers to primary care to health homes. Each model has strengths and challenges in terms of client care, funding, and business models. Regardless of your organization’s approach to integrated care, success depends on leveraging the right set of tools.

Challenges of Integrated Care

Implementing integrated care, regardless of the model, improves patient outcomes for both mental health services and medical care.

Knowing what factors to consider when moving toward a model of integrated care, how to implement and rollout to your staff and community, and what it takes to maintain a successful program are all integral to long term success.

Driving Better Outcomes with Population Health Data Analytics

Individuals living with serious mental illness experience higher rates of co-occurring chronic medical conditions and substance use disorders and are less likely to receive appropriate treatment or improper care. This leads to higher utilization of high-cost services and poor outcomes.

To make progress toward the Triple Aim—improving the health of the population, enhancing the patient experience of care, and reducing the per capita cost of care— provider agencies must be able to determine risk patterns based on a complex combination of data.

Relias Analytics Population Performance Management allows organizations to identify risk, prioritize clinical interventions, and address patient needs proactively.

Integrated Care and the Healthcare Industry

Team discussing treatment program

Integrated models of care are relatively new resulting in a lack of best practices in the industry.  Patients who have complex health needs account for a disproportionate share of healthcare spending or may be at risk of incurring high spending in the near future.

Knowledge about the current healthcare environment, forces driving the industry toward integrated care, and what current literature tells us about successful integrated care implementation (and barriers to implementation) are key to successful model implementation.
