The division between mind and body is artificial; both are aspects of the human organism as a whole. In the future, healthcare will follow a new illness model that treats each person as an integrated whole. Applications of this new model will include reducing stress to ameliorate physical illness, harnessing the power of conditioning to decrease medication doses, and bringing behavioral healthcare into medical settings using computer-aided decision-making, telepsychiatry, and collaborative care.
