This treatment model is becoming the standard of excellence in health care nationally (examples include the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations/JCAHO standards for integrative medicine, Kaiser-Permanente's integrated primary medical care model, and the National Institutes of Health development in 1991 of the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine).
