Welcome to IJIC!
The International Journal of Integrated Care (IJIC) is an online, open-access, peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes original articles in the field of integrated care on a continuous basis.
Established in 2000, IJIC's mission has been to promote integrated care as a scientific discipline. IJIC's primary purpose has been to examine critically the policy and practice of integrated care and whether and how this has impacted on quality-of-care, user experiences, and cost-effectiveness.

Our 2013 Annual Conference took place in April in Berlin. The Conference Supplement can be accessed here. We are pleased to announce that our 2014 Annual Conference will be held in Brussels on 2-4 April.

The IJIC is sponsored by the International Foundation for Integrated Care (IFIC), a not for profit network that crosses organisational and professional boundaries to bring people together to advance the science, knowledge and adoption of integrated care policy and practice around the world.
