Integrated care has the potential to improve health outcomes, enhance patient experience, and increase cost effectiveness, but findings from evaluations have so far been mixed. This seminar presents the COMIC Model, a comprehensive model for evaluating of integrated care initiatives.

The COMIC Model seeks to:

1. analyse individual integrated care initiatives
2. enable comparison of integrated care initiatives in a systematic way.

The COMIC Model enables people involved in integrated care to find their own answers to what works, when, and why. This seminar will be relevant for health professionals, planners, managers and consumers involved in integrated health services.
