Consider the facts. Healthcare providers spend more than three-quarters of each dollar on the care of chronically ill patients. Close to half the population suffers from some form of chronic illness, and with the graying of America this number will skyrocket.

If healthcare organizations are to remain competitive, they must provide chronically ill patients quality care that is cost-effective.

Restructuring Chronic Illness Management offers the most current information on how leaders of top clinical programs have implemented exemplary and cost-conscious programs to manage the care of such common chronic diseases as asthma, arthritis, diabetes, hypertension, and coronary artery disease. In this essential resource, the authors--experts from the nationally recognized Institute for Research and Education of HealthSystem Minnesota--outline a step-by-step program for healthcare executives and administrators who want to implement these best practices in their institutions.

Grounded in research, the book introduces a model and practical tool that can be used by healthcare organizations to effectively treat chronically ill patients. And, because the model and tool are based on the actual experiences of ongoing programs, the authors discuss organizational strategies that will help overcome the inevitable resistance to change.

Restructuring Chronic Illness Management is filled with a wealth of information and illustrative examples that explain how restructure healthcare organizations with a cost-effective team approach. The book also provides a valuable organizational self-assessment tool that can help measure the organization's readiness to implement changes in the treatment of chronic illness.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
