IOM Summit Provides Models for Health Reform
Date:2/27/2009

y evidence and urged further research and testing to expand the evidence base for integrative models of care.
  • A large demonstration project is needed. Because funding for research on the effectiveness of specific models of care is difficult to obtain from standard grant channels, participants voiced support for pursuing a demonstration project funded by the government that would fully demonstrate the effectiveness of the integrated approach to care.
  • "If we fail to seize this unique opportunity to adopt a pragmatic, integrative approach to health care it will constitute a failure and we must not fail," said Senator Tom Harkin, D-IA. "It is my intention to change our health system and to place integrative health care at the heart of the reform legislation we will pass this year." In addition, Harkin called to change the name of the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicines to the National Center for Integrative Medicine.

    Calling attention to the fact that the health care issues facing the United States are actually global issues facing the world, representatives from the Prince's Foundation for Integrated Health in the United Kingdom added their voice to the call for reform. A letter from HRH The Prince of Wales to Summit participants urged both nations to support the creation of a health care system that places a greater emphasis on treating humans as whole beings -- mind, body and spirit -- and on prevention, as well as the cure, of illness and disease.

    The Summit's leadership believes that the integrated approach to health care could provide the basis for our nation's health reform. "We intend to broadly share ideas expressed at this Summit for transforming health care; our key audiences are the Obama Administration and the Department of Health and Human Services," said Judy Salerno, M.D., MS, Executive Director of the IOM."The Bravewell Collaborative looks
