ABSTRACT: Addressing Services and Policy in a Fragmented System
The healthcare system in the United States is extremely fragmented with services for physical and mental healthcare, addiction treatment, and social welfare often delivered by different providers in different locations with different eligibility criteria and separate funding mechanisms. The effects of a fragmented system land disproportionately on individuals with serious mental illness, substance use disorder, and disability who require more services and often have the least resources to navigate the myriad systems. There are opportunities for intervention at multiple levels (federal, state, individual) to address fragmentation and improve outcomes for people living at the intersections of these systems.
