  3. 3. “ Integrated Health Care” <ul><li>One of latest “buzz words” in health care </li></ul><ul><li>There can be confusion about the concept: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>How do you define Integrated Health Care? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What does a successful model look like? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Most agree it’s a desirable goal </li></ul><ul><li>Many not be sure how to get there </li></ul>
  4. 4. Defining Integrated Health Care <ul><li>Integrated Health Care = health care services combining the best of conventional & complementary health care. Mosby's Dictionary of Complementary & Alternative Medicine.

  6. 6. Why now? <ul><li>“ Research demonstrates that mental health is key to overall physical health. Therefore, improving services for individuals with mental illness requires close attention to how mental health care and general medical care interact. While mental health and physical health are clearly connected, a chasm exists between the mental health and general health care systems in financing and practice”. </li></ul>President's New Freedom Commission on Mental Health (2000)
  7. 8. Morbidity and Mortality Rates <ul><li>People with serious mental illness are dying nearly three decades earlier (on average) than general population </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Suicide and injury account for about 30-40% of excess mortality; 60% of premature deaths in persons with schizophrenia due to “natural causes” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>High prevalence of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Newer medications for bipolar disorder and schizophrenia can exacerbate metabolic risks </li></ul><ul><ul><li>BH Providers less likely to screen and monitor regularly </li></ul></ul>J Parks , D Svendsen, P Singer, ME Foti National Association of State Mental Health (October 2006)
