MetadataShow full item record
Amid the ongoing political debate over health care, a revolutionary approach to the actual practice of medicine is quietly taking root nationwide, and especially in Texas. So-called “integrated care,” in which collaborative teams treat patients’ mental and physical health together, is becoming particularly popular despite Texas’ poor health care track record. Integrated care breaks down the traditional “silos” that have kept mental and physical health care separate throughout the years, and claims to make patients healthier for less money. But Texas will have to overcome several logistical, training and financial hurdles before it can become the norm.
