NORTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES …and How YOU Can Benefit Understanding Integrated Care Options…
NORTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES 3 “Every patient, every person, must have a comprehensive personal care plan, that addresses the whole person. That includes all of their problems and concerns and resources and fears and experiences, and essentially, incorporates into that those factors such that you've got a coherent plan for health…that makes use of all of that. So that if there are mental diagnoses, if there are chronic diseases, if there are acute problems, prevention needs, all of those are understood in the context of each other; a whole person plan of care.” These remarks by Frank DeGruy, MD, NIAC Chair, were part of the Mental Health Forum and Town Hall Meeting at the AHRQ 2011 Annual Conference.
