Assessing Integrated Care from the Patient’s Perspective

Grantee Organization: The Commonwealth Foundation - In Collaboration with Harvard University and RAND

Term: May 2013 – November 2014

This project seeks to measure the range of patients’ perceptions of integrated care in a national sample using the Patient Perceptions of Integrated Care (PPIC) survey, a 62 item survey now in its second revision (version 2.0) that comprehensively measures integration of patient care among individuals with multiple chronic conditions for whom integrated care is critically important. The purpose of the present study is to (1) measure variation in patients’ perceptions of integrated patient care in a stratified random national sample and assess relationships among dimensions of integration, and (2) explore organizational characteristics related to integrated patient care and identify those that distinguish physician organizations perceived by patients as more integrated.
