Did you know that over 130 million Americans have one or more chronic conditions? 61% of all deaths among those 65 and older are caused by some kind of chronic disease. It’s been estimated that 75% of the nearly four trillion dollars spent annually on healthcare goes to the treatment of chronic disease. This probably isn’t news to you. You deal with it every day, especially with patients covered by Medicare. Many chronically ill patients are challenged with following care plans and making the best health and lifestyle decisions for their health. Delivering and coordinating care these patients consumes far more in practice resources than it returns.
