Whereas most of these diseases are preventable or treatable, they are still responsible for billions of dollars in direct and indirect health care costs, not to mention pain and suffering that too often ends in death. This sessions seeks to explain how HIT applications and registries can be successfully deployed to manage chronic disease, whether via health-related social networks, or registries that collect data on joint replacement outcomes.
