Abstract and Keywords

As demographics shift to include more elderly populations and those living with chronic medical conditions, costs for health care services continue to escalate. As a result, health care systems around the world increasingly struggle to provide cost-effective, coordinated, and quality health care to those they serve. Significant policy, procedural, and practice changes are essential in solving these growing problems. With experience in interdisciplinary teams, rehabilitation psychologists and other psychological providers have a clear vantage point from which to help guide movement toward an integrated health care model that values health promotion, prevention, and collaborative care. Psychologists can be an integral part of this new “interdisciplinary team,” but, as a profession, we must advocate for this inclusion and position ourselves to take on this new role through education and training.

Keywords: Rehabilitation psychology, health care legislation, health care policy, national health services, Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, medical home, cardinal symptom model, primary care
