An Integrated Future
Over the past two years, we have been documenting the development of mobile integrated healthcare practice and how it could redefine not only the EMS world, but the broader healthcare universe.
This month, we are pleased to announce the launch of Integrated Healthcare Delivery. This journal will provide a forum for innovation and a communication portal for those wishing to translate the best science into an integrated, patient-focused environment.
“Our goal is to become the interprofessional destination of choice for concepts and studies related to integrated healthcare delivery. Rigorous scientific studies are always welcome, but so are manuscripts describing novel strategies, pilot projects, preliminary experience, and unique approaches to integration of care across disciplines and spanning professions,” say IHD editors Eric Beck, DO, NREMT-P, Jeff Beeson, DO, and Brent Myers, MD, MPH, FACEP.
“There is an incredible opportunity to return the focus of healthcare to the patient via integration of healthcare providers, the intelligent use of data and an outcomes orientation. Ideally this new healthcare landscape will allow for time-appropriate and needs-matched care for all of our patients.”
The first issue of IHD is available for download for the iPad. For more information, visit IHDelivery.com.
