Abstract

Disease management programs are beginning to encompass providers across the healthcare continuum, including home healthcare. The premise behind disease management is that coordinated, evidence-based interventions can be applied to the care of patients with specific high-cost, high-volume chronic conditions, resulting in improved clinical outcomes and lower overall costs. Outcomes data (actual results) are central in this approach to patient care.
