Title: Discovering Factors That Enhance Integrated Patient Care
Abstract: Care integration is critical to improving health system quality and value, especially for chronically ill patients. The challenges of caring for patients with chronic illnesses are substantial. However, delivering care that is truly integrated and identifying approaches for integrating care have proved challenging. Sara’s presentation will trace research across multiple studies seeking first to conceptualize integrated patient care, measure it, and identify antecedents that hold promise for transforming US and global health delivery. Discussion will emphasize current and potential research.
