Chronic disease management involves whole person care and a greater degree of self-care, with the goal of avoiding hospital admissions, giving patients more control and reducing costs. It acknowledges that until a medical breakthrough, a person may never be cured of a disease but can enjoy a full life by controlling symptoms and slowing disease progression.
Chronic diseases account for 90 percent of U.S. healthcare expenses. Tackling this area of healthcare can result in an improvement in quality of life for hundreds of millions of people while also reducing healthcare costs.
