IntegratedEthics® (IE) is a comprehensive approach to managing ethics in health care organizations. It represents a radical departure from the traditional ethics committee model. The goal of IE is the continuous improvement of ethics quality.

IntegratedEthics is more than an organizational change initiative, a quality improvement intervention, or the sum of new policies, standards, training programs, measures, tools and structures. IntegratedEthics is a transformational idea that redefines ethics as it is both practiced and led in the health care arena.
