2020 Chronic Care Action Index: The Path to Better Care

For years, the health system has grappled with a daunting challenge: how to effectively identify, engage, and support people struggling to achieve their health goals, so that they can live happier lives.

New U.S. study reveals gaps in chronic care needs and experiences.

MINNEAPOLIS, August 3, 2020 — New research has shed light on a longstanding healthcare system challenge that affects more than 1 in 3 Americans: Health outcomes are not improving for those with complex, chronic health concerns, even though they see their doctor frequently and take multiple medications.

Reimagining Healthcare Delivery: The Whole-Person Approach

At the core of healthcare is human connection. Whether in-person or virtual, mental or physical, chronic or urgent, good health guidance is facilitated by the trust and personal attention between patient and provider.

Promoting patient engagement to prevent readmissions.

Medical experts agree: better engagement with personal health decisions can have a significant impact on health outcomes, while also reducing catastrophic health events and preventable hospital readmissions. But patient engagement isn’t always that straightforward. One of the biggest culprits – for both preventable hospital admission and readmission is medication discrepancy. Medication discrepancy is the mismanagement of medication or complications that stem from medication use that isn’t optimized and patients who are not engaged in their treatment plans.
