Integrated Health Organizations in Canada: Developing the Ideal Model

John Marriott and Ann L. Mable

Abstract

We are pleased that healthcare integration is the focus of this issue of HealthcarePapers and appreciative of the opportunity to focus on Canadian experience. Expanding awareness of Canadian work in this area has never been more important as the health system repositions itself towards the path of integration. As long-term participants in design, policy, research and advocacy for the development of integrated health organizations in Canada and elsewhere, we are more than sympathetic to the important themes presented by Leatt, Pink and Guerriere to improve understanding of integrated health organizations, examine model performance and provide thoughts on how to proceed in Canada.
