Recognizing the need to better bridge the divide between the often-siloed worlds of health and health care, these policies are designed to better integrate, coordinate, and ultimately improve the performance and outcomes of both. Our recommendations focus on two key areas: 1) improving access to and coverage andfinancing of nonmedical and preventive services; and 2) the health care workforce, with a focus on increasing access to care through improvements in the supply and distribution of key practitioners who are needed to improve the health status in underserved communities.
