Integrated Practice Assessment Tool Site Selected to Use:
Description of tool: In April 2013, CIHS released A Standard Framework for Levels of Integrated Healthcare, developed by Bern Heath, Pam Wise Romero and Kathy Reynolds. The framework has six levels of integration, with examples listed for each level. You can use this framework both as a guide to develop a vision for integration and as a tool to assess a team’s progress on a continuum of integration areas, including workforce, clinical delivery, consumer experience, practice/organization, and business model. The framework lists advantages and weaknesses of coordinated, co-located, and integrated care.
Description of Tool: The IPAT places practices on the level of collaboration/integration defined by the standard framework. It uses a decision tree model rather than a metric model to more accurately mirror the issue brief tables and avoid the need to weigh responses to questions, which may result in an in-between assessment score (e.g., a 3.75 co-location). The decision tree model uses a series of yes/no questions that cascade to a specific level of integrated healthcare determination.
