Integrated health network has several interchangeable terms such as integrated health system, integrated delivery system (network), integrated care system (network), organized delivery system, community care network, integrated health care organization, integrated service network, population-based integrated delivery system, and so on, which all emphasize as a multi-organization form characterized by serving a defined population across multi-disciplines, including professionals, units, or service-lines of primary care, acute care and long term care. This book provides leading-edge issues on this field from around the globe.
