What is Integrated Healthcare (IHC)?
Integrated Health Care is a systematic, holistic approach to the overall care of an individual. It is the coordination of services for physical health, mental health, substance use disorder, and development disabilities. Integrated care addresses the whole person. Combining medical care with behavioral health allows the full spectrum of health concerns an individual presents with to be addressed.
