Connecting Care Model
The Independent Practice Integrated Care ( IPIC) project being developed by AMHA-USA, AMHA-OR, COMHPA and MRI is created in response to government-mandated changes to health delivery.  The focus of this project is to assure that independent mental health providers can participate in the evolving system. Quality is defined by the Triple Aim of the Affordable Care Act as measures of (1) access, (2) improved group health and well-being and (3) management or containment of cost. 

The model is called Connecting Care and was created by Mentor Research Institute.
