What is Fully Integrated Healthcare and Why Does It Matter?

Integrated healthcare has emerged as a transformative approach to delivering comprehensive and seamless care to patients.

This model emphasizes collaboration among various healthcare providers, including primary care physicians, specialists, mental health professionals, and other allied health professionals, to deliver coordinated, patient-centered care. This approach recognizes that physical and behavioral health are interconnected, and that addressing both is essential for the best health outcomes.

There are many benefits to integrated healthcare, including:

  • Improved quality of care: Fully integrated healthcare provides a more comprehensive approach to patients’ health, which leads to improved quality of care. Providers are able to consider all the factors that contribute to a patient’s health, including their physical, mental, emotional, and social well-being.
  • Better health outcomes: By focusing on preventative care, early intervention, and chronic disease management, integrated healthcare can lead to better health outcomes, reduced hospitalizations, and lower healthcare costs in the long run.
  • Increased efficiency and patient satisfaction: Fully integrated care models promote efficiency by reducing redundant services and unnecessary tests. This allows providers to allocate resources more effectively and deliver timely care to patients. Additionally, this keeps patients satisfied because they are provided with a more convenient and coordinated care experience. Clients can access numerous health services in one place, and they can be confident knowing their providers are working together to create a personalized treatment plan.

At Coplin Health Systems, we offer medical, dental, and behavioral healthcare, as well as pharmaceutical services. The benefit of offering all these services under one roof is that each patients’ records are easily accessible. This allows all providers to have a better understanding of their patients’ past and current conditions.

With a pharmacy on-site, patients can pick up their prescriptions right after their visit without adding an extra stop. If there is ever an issue with cost, for example, the pharmacist is able to call the doctor and choose another affordable option for the patient. Additionally, providers can easily make referrals. This is one benefit of having multiple providers on-site. For example, during a dental visit, if the dentist notices another medical issue, a referral can easily be made. With these services being offered at Coplin, appointments can be scheduled sooner than at other facilities.

Fully integrated healthcare is a team approach to providing high-quality, patient-centered health services that are coordinated and delivered in a cost-effective manner. At Coplin Health Systems, we believe our integrated approach to healthcare is the best method for delivering the highest quality care to every patient.
