The complex U.S. health system is currently organized around the needs and interests of providers. The “Bridges to Health” model offers a way to think about developing programs for segments of the population that meet patients’ needs for coordinated, integrated care.

Three examples are given to illustrate the possibility of conceptualizing integrated care and its advantages.
