Patient is partner, not consumer

The 1960s saw the emergence of cooperation in healthcare; a development that started with the GP. Teams were established. A second wave of cooperation emerged in the 1980s. This second wave concerned care for people with chronic conditions. Primary care and secondary care started to cooperate: shared care was born. The first ten conferences of the International Foundation of Integrated Care (1999-2009) focused on cooperation in primary care, elderly care and chronic care and continued to do so in the years after. However, integrated care also expanded to mental healthcare, palliative care, emergency care and birth care. Currently, global efforts are made to expand integrated care to a great number of new patient groups and to study aspects of it.
