Introduction The U.S healthcare system has been characterized as complex, fragmented and costly, and one that thus results in an inefficient allocation of resources. Due to this, the concept of integrated healthcare delivery systems (IDSs) has gained much interest over the past few decades. Throughout healthcare policy, these systems have been considered the better solution to addressing issues surrounding not only the cost of care to the system, but the quality of care that is provided from the system. Much in alignment with the concepts of managed care, integrated delivery systems act to contain the cost of healthcare, while providing quality care to the consumer.

Structure for Integrated Care Mission. The goal of this proposal is to improve health outcomes for consumers. Merging the mental health services sector within the same facility as the rest of the agency will demonstrate what elements of this new model will be effective and what factors still need to be addressed. The creation of this new system will solely be based on evidence-based practices. Creating a communal health care setting will make different silos of care more accessible for consumers, and different aspects of wellness will be highlighted so that a more holistic view of the consumer’s risk factors and overall well being can be depicted. This model emphasizes the concept of self-determination and the person-centered approach, because
While discussions of integrated care are not new in the United States, the research literature has largely been about blending mental and chemical health into physical health systems. Using a critical hermeneutic application of interpretive phenomenology, this study aims to address that gap by interviewing adults with serious mental illness about their experience receiving physical health services within a community mental health center. Nine individuals, five clients and four providers, interviewed for this study were selected using the critical case criterion in partnership with the community mental health center. Interviews were digitally recorded and transcribed. Data analysis was conducted within-case followed by cross-case analysis technique.
