Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this paper was to consider whether the integration of complementary and alternative medicine within coordinated care organizations would be possible and beneficial. Per capita health expenditures in the Unites States are greater than any other nation’s in the world. However, many complain that the organization and distribution of treatment and care is less than ideal. A primary issue credited for high spending in healthcare, is the treatment and care of the chronically ill. Hoping to decrease healthcare costs, improve care, and improve the health of Americans, coordinated care organizations (CCOs) have formed nationwide. Recently, the United States has also begun observing an increase in the number of individuals using complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). An analysis of CCOs and CAM found that many of their primary goals are very similar, if not identical. Both believe in treating the whole patient, being patient-centered, and promoting preventive health. Additionally, CAM and CCOs share a focus on the chronically ill. The popularity of CAM also supports its marriage with CCOs, as doing so would provide the most accurate model of completely coordinated care.
