MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

"Remaking Chronic Care in the Age of Health Care Reform: Changes for Lower Cost, Higher Quality Treatment" is nothing less than a blueprint for a new mode of chronic care. It depicts a current system in which there is little financial incentive to furnish coordinated services via appropriate primary care and few penalties for failure to deliver such care. Arguing that the current system is unsustainable, this book documents efforts that have been made to promote better coordination of care through patient-centered medical homes and accountable care organizations. Specifically, this book focuses on linking the ongoing innovations in health care practices with the supports for scaling up innovations found in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. It shows how expanding and improving primary care as the vehicle for care coordination will reduce costs for those with conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, hypertension, or other longstanding disorders, but also makes it clear that incentives have to be realigned if such improved primary care is to become a reality.
