And knowing where to start with your existing systems, providers, workflows, and logistics can be a lot. Join industry experts and authors Dr. Andrea Auxier and Dr. Jeanette Waxmonsky as they guide you from the wishing and planning stage to the actual execution of integrating care – all in a way that’s proven to work.

- Where and how it’s ideal to integrate care
- Common challenges
- The six levels framework
- The Integrated Practice Assessment Tool (IPAT)
- Strategies to apply integration to programs and populations
