Integration and Collaboration

Integration refers to the cooperation of providers within a single organization to deliver healthcare to an individual. Collaboration refers to the cooperation of providers in general to deliver healthcare services to an individual, with providers potentially coming from multiple different organizations. For example, oral health and behavioral health services are often integrated with primary care.
