    Integrated Care and Community Health: Treating the “Whole Person”

    Integrated Care and Community Health: Treating the “Whole Person”

    Physical and mental health issues are closely connected. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, major depressive disorder is found in 40 percent of cancer victims, 27 percent of diabetes patients and 17 percent of people with heart disease. Despite these strong linkages, siloed approaches to care prevent coordinated, integrated treatment and contribute to increased costs for county healthcare and human services programs. This panel session will showcase a successful care coordination initiative that is improving health outcomes and reducing the cost of care.
