I’ll review this in a little bit (getting a bit of a slow start this AM), but I wanted THCB readers to know that California Healthcare Foundation has published some more excellent studies with very practical applications. These ones focus on chronic disease. There are three. One on helping patients manage their own chronic conditions, a second on the tools available for patient self-management, and a third on the benefits and challenges of using telephone based chronic care management techniques (which is where the state of the industry is now).
Excellent practical stuff from an organization that is focused on helping make real positive change.
