The Hospital Community Integration Council will consist of hospital-based behavioral and medical healthcare providers and community-based behavioral healthcare organizations and be the voice of all by developing and implementing strategies to foster collaboration and integrated care as the system moves to a population health model.
The Hospital Community Integration Council will reinforce collaboration beyond referrals of patients between hospital- and community-based providers; and advocate to the Administration, including but not limited to the Department of Health, Department of Human Services (Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services and Division of Medical Assistance and Health Services) and Department of Children and Families, to align incentives via a single funding stream and regulatory changes to support a population health model that emphasizes individual-centered integrated care, community integration, improved outcomes and ongoing recovery support for individuals with mental illnesses, substance use disorders, developmental disabilities and/or physical illnesses.
