IOM to CDC and HRSA: Bridge private and public health

Government Health IT, April 3, 2012

Integration of these fields will require national leadership as well as substantial adaptation at the local level, said authors of the report. The report recommends ways that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) could foster integration between primary care and public health through funding, policy levers, and other means.
