Abstract
Policy Points:
:: Investigations on systematic methodologies for measuring integrated care should coincide with the growing interest in this field of research.
:: A systematic review of instruments provides insights into integrated care measurement, including setting the research agenda for validating available instruments and informing the decision to develop new ones.
:: This study is the first systematic review of instruments measuring integrated care with an evidence synthesis of the measurement properties.
:: We found 209 index instruments measuring different constructs related to integrated care; the strength of evidence on the adequacy of the majority of their measurement properties remained largely unassessed
