Chronic Disease Management Program was established to address the unique needs of patients diagnosed with advanced stages of multiple myeloma, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease who were too ill to enroll in a standard Chronic Disease Management Program. The program was established to provide financial, medical, and social support for eligible patients in the treatment of their advanced stage disease. The program was designed to reduce the financial burden of chronic disease on health care providers and patients by helping to establish financial resources to cover specific aspects of care for these patients. The primary objectives of the program were to describe the obstacles associated with availability, access, and acceptability experienced by such patients with advanced stages of cancer who were otherwise eligible, but refused enrollment in a standard Chronic Disease Management Program (see below).
How to Know About Chronic Disease
The primary outcome of the Chronic Disease Management Program was the creation of a customized Chronic Disease Management System that is designed to meet the specific needs of the individual patient. The primary objective of the system is to promote healthy behavior change in order to enhance the overall quality of life of each participant in the program. The Chronic Disease Management Program is delivered through a network of primary care and specialty practices. The primary objectives of the system are to improve patient access and utilization of healthcare services, improve the overall quality of care, increase the access and utilization of services for economically and medically disadvantaged individuals and families, promote healthy financial and personal health, improve the health of the caregivers and the patients, reduce the stress experienced by the patients, create an environment that supports a sense of community among participants, reduce the risk of participant default, and create an environment that supports the sustained transition of beneficiaries to care after completing the Chronic Disease Management Program.
The primary objective of the Chronic Disease Management Program is to improve the outcomes associated with direct primary care healthcare. The secondary objectives are to reduce overall health-related care costs, increase access and utilization of healthcare services for financially and medically disadvantaged individuals and their families, improve the quality of care and reduce overall health-related risks. It is important to note that the primary objective of the Chronic Disease Management Program is to improve the outcomes of direct primary care and is not intended to replace the primary objective of hospital admission or emergency care. It is also not intended to address all of the issues surrounding the management of chronic diseases.
