For adults with a serious mental illness and children with a serious emotional disturbance, an integrated healthcare approach is needed to care for the whole person, physically and mentally. Pathways Integrated Health Home/Integrated Health Service (IHH/IHS) provides care coordination and communication between a team of medical and behavioral healthcare professionals to identify any gaps in overall care. This level of collaborative care restores physical and mental well-being leading to a healthier, happier life.
What Are the Benefits of Integrated Health Home/Integrated Health Services?
