Description

Despite broad consensus that the integration of health and social care could improve health, reduce health inequities, and reduce potentially avoidable health care use and costs, persistent barriers and challenges have impeded systems-level efforts to integrate these sectors in the United States. The International Health and Social Care Integration Collaborative is an international partnership aiming to facilitate knowledge-transfer with the goal of increasing integration in healthcare and social service delivery in the United States and abroad.
