Care Management and the Future of Health Care

Health care is on the everyone’s mind in the United States. That preoccupation is fueled in part by the controversy surrounding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which promises to ensure coverage for 32 million Americans currently without health insurance. But the conversation on health care also is driven by the country’s changing demographics, particularly the aging population bubble—known collectively as the baby boomers—that threatens to overwhelm health care providers and payers with increasing and prolonged demands. That threat is exacerbated by the fact that medical care in the United States today suffers from problems related to cost, quality, fragmented delivery, and compliance with new models and reforms. Other significant challenges include a lack of coordination among physicians, concern for patients’ positive experiences in the health care system, and accessibility to widely dispersed medical records.
