Mental health integration was designed to fill the gaps in chronic disease prevention management by instating mental health care as a fundamental component of primary care and establishing teams and care plans to treat patients’ whole health, mind and body.
A ten-year study period (conducted at Intermountain Healthcare) demonstrated that a team-based care approach incorporating mental health care into primary care led to notable improvements in clinical quality, health system access, and cost savings in relation to clinical complexity.
