What Is the Chronic Care Model?
The Chronic Care Model is a framework designed to help members of the healthcare system deliver effective, high-quality care for people with chronic conditions. The idea that we only need to see a provider during acute illness or injury doesn’t align well with chronic conditions that require a preventive approach with ongoing assessment, treatment and education. The Chronic Care Model provides guidelines for transitioning to the preventive approach so patients can enjoy better health and our society can minimize the extensive costs associated with these conditions.
