Working to improve the health and lower the healthcare costs of individuals with multiple chronic conditions (MCC), the Integrated Health Advocacy Program (IHAP) is comprised of teams of trained multidisciplinary advocates who work in collaboration with physicians (PCP), participants and their caregivers. IHAP is a patient-centered approach in which teams help individuals become active participants of their own health care, thus developing healthier lifestyles. IHAP teams use their unique expertise to examine the underlying causes of the MCC and support treatment of the causes while simultaneously removing numerous obstacles to improve health. Through advocacy, education and support, IHAP teams collaborate with patients to emphasize appropriate interventions, to avoid redundancy of treatments, and to adhere to medication compliance, thus saving healthcare dollars.

Since its inception, this evidence-based advocacy program has empowered more than 700 people to change their lives.
