Integration

The goal for our individuals is that our staff actively engages and supports individuals in addressing their healthcare needs. TCIH staff functions as an integrated care team to address individual needs. The integrated effort may include attending appointments with the individual, behavioral planning, and care coordination to facilitate development
of a shared treatment plan.

Dedicating time to support follow through for individuals enrolled in TCIH will be beneficial for both staff and the individual. It is a way for staff to be both productive and effective for each individual they work with that has complex medical needs.

A strong relationship between mental and physical health has been demonstrated empirically, and a goal pursued and accomplished in this area can be expected to be beneficial to one’s overall wellness, including mental health.

If you feel that your client has an unmet physical health need that is compromising activities of daily living and their overall ability to recover from mental illness, then please consider referring your patient to us.

Communication

The advantage to an integrated model of care is the increased potential for consistent and productive communication. Through consistent efforts to increase communication, the integrated team approach will assist our individual to improve their overall healthcare and to sustain improved outcomes.
