4394.0 Primary Care and the Chronic Care Model

Tuesday, November 1, 2011: 4:30 PM
Chronic Disease Management led by teams is one of the ways to achieve outcomes at or better than national benchmarks at a fraction of the cost. The CCDM model may have implications for health service delivery in insured populations; especially in a health care climate of fiscal restraint. Collaborative care models seem to be applicable to a wide-range of populations and settings and organizations that implement them. The Chronic Care Model has been used to intervene in depression and pediatric obesity, among other chronic illnesses
Session Objectives: * Identify why a Chronic Care Model is needed for the US health system, and how to implement in the community settings. * Describe the application of the Chronic Care Model to develop the Collaborative Care Model for disease management. * Discuss how to prepare the future physician workforce to play an important role in presentation and management of disease.
