CONNECTING CARE
The Connecting Care model (Independent Practice Integrated Care - IPIC) is being developed by AMHA-USA, AMHA-OR and MRI and was created in response to government-mandated changes to health delivery has impact both the public and commercial payers and providers.  It is being developed so that independent mental health providers can participate in mental health delivery 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 used for IPIC is called “Connecting Care” and was created by Mentor Research Institute.
