McGinnis, T., Crawford, M., & Somers, S. (2014, July). State policy framework for integrating health and social services. New York, NY: The Commonwealth Fund.

Year: 2014


This issue brief describes three essential components for integrating health, including physical and behavioral health services and public health, and social services: 1) a coordinating mechanism; 2) quality measurement and data-sharing tools; and 3) aligned financing and payment. It also presents a five-step policy framework to help states move beyond isolated pilot efforts and establish the infrastructure necessary to support ongoing integration of health and social services, particularly for Medicaid beneficiaries.
