The Integrity Health Foundation's mission is to enhance charitable, scientific, cultural and educational efforts that advance innovative and cost-effective patient-care models. The Foundation also advocates medical education and research to promote quality healthcare in the regions it serves.
The Integrity Health Foundation is engaged in a number of initiatives in support of its mission, including:
New models of care:
In 2014 the Foundation board voted to fund support of a model of care called an Accountable Care Organization (ACO). This funding helped create and sustain a new organization called Integrity Health Innovations, LLC and served as a vehicle for independent clinics to compete in the total-cost-of-care contracting arena.
The Foundation has supported clinics through a variety of programs, including QI projects, technology initiatives, and assistance with provider recruitment. It has also worked on other exciting initiatives, most notably grant acquisition from a major health insurance company to explore a new model of care called an Accountable Community for Health.
