Integrated Health Care
Integrated health care is provided by a team of behavioral health and primary care clinicians, working together with individuals and families, using a systemic and cost-effective approach to provide patient-centered care for a defined population. This care may address mental health, substance use, health behaviors and conditions, life stressors and crises, stress-related physical symptoms and ineffective patterns of health care utilization (adapted from Peek, 2013).
