Reforming the US Healthcare System: Implementing an Effective Approach to Chronic Disease

Reforming the US Healthcare System: Implementing an Effective Approach to Chronic Disease

Ratings: (0)|Views: 248|Likes:
It is widely acknowledged that the future of our US healthcare system is challenged with the rising prevalence of chronic disease: 1 The cost of healthcare per capita is increasing, but there is evidence that children born today will have, on average, a shorter life expectancy than their parents due to the rising incidence and subsequent burden of chronic disease.2 Thus, the US healthcare system is facing a looming crisis, and medicine is in need of a new healthcare model that sensibly incorporates recent breakthroughs in the origins of chronic disease. Fortunately, the last few decades have brought about alterations in the healthcare delivery system that provide more effective preventive care and chronic disease management.3 This article looks at the need to develop reimbursement procedures for prospective, functional interventions that provide support for assessment, patient education, and therapy to reduce the burden of chronic disease.
