Community Integrated Health

Community Integrated Health is the effort to strengthen the linkages between traditional health care and community-based prevention strategies in order to help individuals prevent, delay, or live better with chronic conditions.

Community Integrated Health:

  • Increases access to care
  • Lowers costs
  • Prevents and addresses chronic disease
  • Reduces the effects of some social determinants of health
