High-need individuals include an increasingly diverse group of people who may have functional limitations that affect their ability to get care or engage in activities of daily living, have high medical expenditures, and utilize a significant amount of care. In the United States, care management for this population remains fragmented, uncoordinated, and reactive.
In this new publication from NAM, experts provide insight into care models for high-need patients that have proven results and identify opportunities for action across multiple sectors. Improving care for high-need patients is not only possible - it also contributes to a more sustainable health system.
A related webinar series provides insight on the components of successful models of care for specific groups of high-need patients by featuring programs across the country.
