What is Integrated Healthcare (IHC)?

Integrated Health Care is a systematic, holistic approach to the overall care of an individual. It is the coordination of services for physical health, mental health, substance use disorder, and development disabilities.  Integrated care addresses the whole person.  Combining medical care with behavioral health allows the full spectrum of health concerns an individual presents with to be addressed.

In Detroit-Wayne County, integrated health care will give individuals and family members comprehensive and easy access to recovery-oriented supports and services from heath care professionals who are welcoming and trained to deliver integrated health care that meets the individual’s needs.  Medical and behavioral health professionals work together as a team to improve the overall health and well-being of each individual at any provider location.
